I endorse wholeheartedly Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic candidate for Governor of New York State. The citizens of New York State are weary of the incompetent government to which we have been subjected over the past decade or more. Andrew Cuomo has the background, the honorable name recognition and the gifted colleagues to push forth his agenda to restore the state to its former high standing.
Andrew Cuomo has pledged a freeze on state taxes and has ruled out sales levies to close the $9 billion budget deficit. He has insisted that public employee unions have lobbied our legislators to raise spending far beyond the state’s ability to pay. Over the past two years, legislators have ballooned the state budget to eight times the rate of inflation. He vows to limit this growth in spending.

Cuomo has performed admirably as our New York State Attorney General. He as succeeded in prosecuting Medicaid fraud and in ending student loan practices that were unethical. His investigations into wrong-doing by members of his own party reveal his independent, fearless nature. His campaign against rival Carl Paladino for the governor’s seat has demonstrated his superior character in the face of Paladino’s erratic behavior.

New York State is the highest taxed state in the nation, driving businesses away from operating within our confines. Young people have had to leave their homes and families to settle elsewhere because of the dearth of jobs for college graduates. Andrew Cuomo’s promises to clean up Albany and restore dignity and trust to state government give us hope that we will finally turn the corner after years of dealing with corruption and apathyat the highest level.
