Statement on Thruway Authority Decision to Pull Toll Hike

Earlier today, the New York State Thruway Authority pulled a plan which would have increased tolls on the Thruway 45% for commercial trucks. I would like to thank everyone who signed my on-petition to call on the NYS Thruway Authority NOT to increase tolls. Your voices have been heard by the Authority and our Governor. Also, I would like to thank the folks at Klein Steel, Inc. for their support and hosting a press conference in August that discussed the negative impact a toll hike would have on jobs, the working class, and small businesses in our community. Finally, thanks to Steve Wadhams of Wadhams Enterprises. This time the loud voice of people served democracy well.
