Small businesses and entrepreneurs create eight out of every ten new jobs in New York State. Although many NY State economic development programs have been created specifically to assist small businesses and entrepreneurs in creating or retaining jobs, in reality larger businesses often have a competitive advantage in accessing state assistance, with greater levels of resources and in-house expertise.

Paul Rodriguez, a sophomore at St. Anthony's High School, has joined Senator Phil Boyle in his effort to provide the victims of Superstorm Sandy with badly needed supplies. Paul collected donations from his Islip Terrace neighborhood and delivered them to Senator Boyle's office where a local drive continues through April 5th.
"I appreciate the tremendous support given by Paul Rodriguez and so many others who have generously donated to our effort," Senator Boyle said. "Our goal is to provide as much help as we can to the people still suffering from the devastating effects of Sandy."
Senator Boyle believes that elected officials should be readily available to their constituents. That’s why one of the first things he has done as a new State Senator is to create a "One on One With Your Senator" program. These meetings provide constituents the opportunity to meet one on one with Senator Boyle in their own neighborhood to discuss concerns they have about government issues.
If you need assistance with government services, have questions about government programs, or would like to express concerns about a particular issue, Senator Boyle invites you to share them with him when he visits your neighborhood.
