Hauppauge, NY - January 9th, 2014 - In response to Gov. Cuomo's State of the State Agenda, County Exec. Steve Bellone has issued the following statement:
"In the last three years, Governor Cuomo has proved to be a committed partner to Suffolk County. He recognizes that high property taxes remain a high burden on our homeowners and that we need to continue to attract new businesses to our region. His State of the State agenda will address just that and continue to push New York on a path to economic growth. From tax relief to exciting proposals for our education system to rebuilding our communities after Sandy, the Governor's agenda for this year is full of promising initiatives. I applaud his vision and offer any support to push it forward."
