Something great I noticed yesterday while spending the day in the State Capitol Concourse. There was a large lobby display of major investment projects all around NY State. The showcase of projects started and proposed under Gov Cuomo's watch was very impressive. Lots of green energy. Lots of infrastructure building. Lots of business development. New industries - technology, health, and more.
It struck me loud and clear: for the gas/oil industry to continue to use the argument that NY jobs will be a prime benefit of HVHF in our state is useless! It is a temporary boom and such an industry path will be destructive to our state in so many ways. Creating 60,000 jobs temporarily (many filled from out of state employees) and destroying just as many or more NY jobs and businesses permanently is not sound fiscal development.
NY is doing well to grow into a safe, healthy, sound economy. Miles yet to go, but there is a base developed NOW that we can build on for all generations of NY citizens.
