Statement on state election results from Heather C. Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State
ALBANY, N.Y.—“The State election results are good news for The Business Council's pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda and for New Yorkers.
“We congratulate Governor Cuomo on his re-election, and look forward to continuing our good working relationship with his administration. There is more work to do promoting economic growth and competitiveness, including regulatory reform and local mandate relief, and we need to continue on a fiscally responsible path.
“Clearly voters upstate and on Long Island recognized their need for a voice in the leadership of the Legislature and cast their State Senate ballots for balance in government.
"We congratulate the newly elected Senators and members of the Assembly from both parties, and look forward to working with them toward a productive 2015 legislative session,” said Heather C. Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State.
The Business Council represents some 2,400 private sector employers from across the State who employ more than 1.2 million New Yorkers.
