Forsythe: I keep my promises
To the Editor:
I'm running for the 118th Assembly District. For the last six months I have travelled throughout this district talking with farmers, small businesses, healthcare professionals and taxpayers. People are frustrated with our current legislators and disappointed in state government.
As a small business owner, I know the restrictions imposed by the state are hindering job creation. My main focus will be to pull in the reigns on our regulatory agencies, fight for tax credits and make New York a more business friendly environment.
