The Business Council endorses Como in the 15th Senate District

ALBANY, N.Y.— The Business Council of New York State is endorsing Republican Anthony Como for State Senate in the 15th Senate District.

“Anthony Como is a candidate that will bring much needed change to Albany,” said Kenneth Adams, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State. “Anthony Como understands that New York's economy cannot grow and create new jobs until we lower the tax burden and bring down the cost of doing business in this state.”

“Anthony Como is committed to ending business as usual in Albany and putting our state on the path to recovery by lowering taxes and cutting spending,” added Adams.

“His opponent, Sen. Joseph Addabbo, Jr., has voted consistently with his party's leadership to raise taxes by billions of dollars, still leaving the state with billions in red ink going forward,” said Adams. “We cannot keep raising taxes to maintain unsustainable levels of state spending and hope to see our state's economy recover.”

Anthony Como supports the Business Council's Enough Already NY campaign's Five to Survive economic reform agenda which includes: a property tax cap; a state spending cap; reducing the tax burden; reforming public employee pensions and limiting government borrowing.

His opponent incumbent Sen. Addabbo scored a mere 15 percent on The Business Council Voters' Guide, available here.

The endorsement comes through the Business Council's Political Action Committee.
