PLEASANT VALLEY, NY - Senator Sue Serino completed her third stop on her ‘Small Business Bounce Back Tour’ in Pleasant Valley this week where she was joined by Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, and County Legislators Don Sagliano and Deirdre Houston. Serino launched the ‘Bounce Back’ tour in an effort to hear directly from small business owners and area employers about their experiences throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and to elicit feedback on how the state can work to effectively empower them to build back stronger in its wake.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our communities, and they need to remain a top priority as the State rebuilds in the wake of the pandemic,” said Senator Sue Serino. “The ‘Small Business Bounce Back Tour’ has provided me with a first-hand look at the issues and priorities of area employers as they begin to look toward the future, and how we can all work together to ensure they have the tools they need to thrive. Throughout my tour, it has been clear that our small businesses are determined to come back stronger than ever and I am committed to doing all that I can to help.”
As part of the initiative, Senator Serino visited:
- Amore Pizzeria and Cafe
- Brendees Ice Cream
- Cotter’s Valley Wine & Liquor Store
- Daffodils Gift Shoppe
- Madison’s Pizza Café & Catering
- Orlando Family Hardware Store
- Perfect Confections
- Pleasant Valley Department Store
- Publick House 23
Dutchess County Legislator Deirdre Houston (Pleasant Valley, Washington, and Amenia) said, “As a small business owner, it was great to talk to Pleasant Valley entrepreneurs and share our perspectives. It’s not always easy but when the business community bands together we can lift each other up.”
Dutchess County Legislator Don Sagliano (Pleasant Valley and Town of Poughkeepsie) said, “Pleasant Valley has a thriving small business community and it’s important that their government representatives are aware of what works and what doesn’t. Thank you to Senator Serino for listening to us and pledging to work to address our needs.”
