The Business Council PAC endorses Rich Funke for State Senate
Albany, N.Y.—The Political Action Committee of The Business Council of New York State, Inc. has endorsed Rich Funke for New York State Senate in the 55th District.
“The many people in the Rochester area who know Rich from his long career in broadcasting also know that Rich is committed to community service through his volunteer efforts for the Golisano Children's Hospital, Camp Good Days and Special Times, Cancer Action and Special Olympics among others, he views service in the State Senate as an extension of his community service and that attitude is welcome in public office,” said Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., president and CEO of The Business Council.
“The Business Council strongly endorses Rich Funke's candidacy and our members look forward to working with him on the critical issues necessary to create economic growth, good jobs and strong communities in the 55th Senate district,” said Briccetti.
The Business Council represents some 2,400 private sector employers in New York and our members include businesses of all sizes from across the State employing more than 1.2 million New Yorkers.
