One Week…

With the terrible destruction that Hurricane Sandy unleashed on the east coast, my thoughts are with those that are suffering unspeakable devastation this morning.

You have been inundated with television commercials, radio ads and newspaper stories.  NFIB has been front and center working to inform small business owners of the issues this campaign season and the candidates the best support free enterprise.  NFIB/NY has endorsed 75 state legislative candidates and scored each and every member of the state legislature.

With a week left, the time is rapidly approaching to do your part and cast a vote for candidates that you feel will best help your business, your family and your employees.  These rarely are easy decisions, and much is at stake.  Nationally and here at the state level, there is an opportunity to shape our economic future.  Simply, to bolster a stagnate private sector economy that desperately needs it.

Your vote will help shape our future.

In light of Hurricane Sandy, poll sites may change.  Keep up to date with the latest changes here.

If you are unsure where you are registered to vote, can you find out here.
