Assemblyman Gary D. Finch (R,C,I-Springport) received another major endorsement. Unshackle Upstate, a bipartisan coalition representing over 70,000 companies, tapped Finch over his opponent in his bid for re-election.

“In the district, our entire staff is committed to connecting small businesses to services and helping them solve problems. In Albany, I am an outspoken advocate for cutting taxes, reforming regulations and making things easier for hardworking people who want to invest in their communities and hire their neighbors. I am so grateful for Unshackle Upstate’s endorsement and support,” said Finch.

“Voters across upstate are concerned about sluggish job growth and the overall health of the economy. The 33 candidates we’ve endorsed today will fight for a pro-growth agenda that includes tax relief, sensible regulatory reforms, a better business climate and a brighter future for Upstate New York,” said Greg Biryla, executive director of Unshackle Upstate. “We’re proud to support these candidates and encourage upstate voters to support them with us on Election Day.”

“We have a talented workforce right here in Central New York. We need to unleash that potential, and we’ll do it by creating an environment that attracts entrepreneurs who share our vision for the future. We can compete in high-tech manufacturing. We can compete in research and development and across the technological landscape, but first we need to slash the taxes and reform the regulations that, too often, have businesses looking to other states. That is what I’ll be fighting to change next session,” said Finch.

Finch added that more needs to be done to help farmers, small businesses and manufacturers who have been struggling to keep their doors open for decades.

“Attracting new businesses is clearly important, but we can’t lose sight of the restaurants, family farms and shops that have been employing their neighbors and contributing to our community for years. They need a break from high taxes. Too often, they see government as a roadblock to progress. The best thing we can do is get out of the way and let talented New Yorkers do what they do best.”
