Business Council Endorses George Amedore in the 46th State Senate District

ALBANY— The Business Council of New York State, Inc. is endorsing George Amedore in the 46th State Senate District.

"As a small business owner, George Amedore sees firsthand the need for growth and job creation in New York. He understands that to put New York on a path to economic recovery we need to lower taxes and lower the cost of doing business in this state. As a member of the Assembly, George has been a champion of pro-growth policies and will continue to focus on those policies when he is elected Senator," said Heather Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc.

"I want to thank the Business Council for its support and commitment in my senate campaign," said Amedore. "It is a privilege to work with the Business Council and its advocacy to all of its representatives in New York. As a small businessman, I understand the difficult challenges that we face in this economy. And I vow to continue to work on behalf of all New Yorkers to make this the proud state that we all know."

In the Assembly, George supported much of the Business Council?'s economic reform agenda which includes the enactment of a property tax cap; mandate relief and tax reform; public employee pension reforms and limiting government borrowing.

George scored 85 percent on the Business Council?s 2012 Voters? Guide for his votes in the Assembly.

The 2012 Voters? Guide measures New York State legislators? commitment to promoting fiscal reform and improving the state?s economic climate by scoring their votes on key legislation during the 2012 session.
