The Business Council congratulates Lee Zeldin for his win in the 3rd State Senate District

ALBANY—The Business Council of New York State, Inc. congratulates Lee Zeldin for his win in the 3rd State Senate District.

"We are very pleased voters have re-elected Senator Zeldin to another term in the State Senate. We have long supported Lee for his tireless work on behalf of businesses and commuters to repeal the MTA payroll tax and other job-killing pieces of legislation,” said Heather Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc. “Lee understands that businesses in the MTA region need tax relief to grow and add jobs. That's why voters have clearly validated his efforts.”

“The Business Council looks forward to working with Senator Zeldin as we continue to promote an economic reform agenda which includes mandate relief, tax reform, controlled state spending and limiting government borrowing,” Briccetti added.
