We live in one of the most beautiful parts of New York State. From our historic cities, towns and villages to sweeping vistas of rich farmland, we are blessed with abundant cultural and natural resources. Over the last two years, I met with people across the district who described their community’s challenges. What have I learned? We want quality career opportunities for ourselves and our children. We expect continued support of our agricultural industry. We’re willing to pay our fair share in taxes, provided the money is spent responsibly. And we want a clear vision for our district’s future.
As a small businesswoman, creating jobs is something I do. I know that creativity, initiative and hard work build businesses that produce jobs. I believe that over the next ten years, we can grow an economy based on innovation and entrepreneurship. An economy that fosters successful sustainable farms that bring healthy foods to our tables and to market across the state. An economy that provides good jobs and careers in high-tech for the people of Saratoga and Washington Counties. We must effectively steward the investments that first brought high-tech manufacturing to our area and actively nurture local entrepreneurial ventures. We must encourage new ventures to start up in the historic buildings of our town and village centers, as a responsible way to foster development and protect the environment. We must ensure that we are educating our young people to have the skills they will need to succeed whether they want to get a job or become an entrepreneur.
I want to represent you in the New York State Assembly because I have a vision for this district. I see our economy growing and providing a wealth of opportunities for generations to come. I believe you deserve representation by someone who understands and is actively engaged in local issues. I’m committed to partnering with community leaders in Saratoga and Washington Counties to develop our economy, protect farms, and strengthen the quality of life we enjoy. As your advocate in Albany, our district’s concerns will be my only priority. Thank you for your support.
