Brewster, N.Y. – (11/07/11) – Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) today was joined by business leaders from throughout Putnam County announcing the need for collaboration in moving forward several shovel ready projects in the agriculture, technology, commercial, real estate, energy and manufacturing sectors. The projects represent over 3,000 permanent and 1,500 construction jobs. If state sponsored economic development support is approved, these projects could provide a significant boost to job creation and a big increase in local municipal revenues to support schools and public services.
Senator Ball, in coordination with local community leaders, worked to secure $67 million for local projects. This is just the beginning and we must continue to work together to help local businesses expand while attracting new investment and businesses as well.
