Last week, Governor Cuomo continued to promote the START-UP NY program, which will give new employers and their employees 10 years of tax-free operation if they locate on or near college campuses throughout the state.


Last week, the Governor visited Jamestown and Ithaca.  We think that the START-UP NY program is a good thing and we are very happy that the Governor is talking about the need to fix the Upstate economy – it’s why we exist – but those of us who are here today need tax relief as well.


Unshackle Upstate is working on a proposal that we hope to release later this summer that would do just that – provide tax relief for working people in Upstate New York.
