Associated Builders and Contractors Announces Full List of State Senate Endorsements

 

Associated Builders and Contractors, Empire State Chapter today announced their full list of endorsed candidates for State Senate.

 

ABC’s Empire State Chapter is the leading voice promoting free enterprise within the construction industry in New York. Founded on the merit shop philosophy, which encourages open competition and a free enterprise approach that awards contracts based solely on merit, regardless of labor affiliation, ABC exists to help members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically, profitably and for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work.

 

President Brian Sampson said, “Our organization represents nearly 400 contractors throughout New York State who employ thousands. These are hard working men and women who simply want an opportunity for a level playing field and a fair shot at public work. The environment for small businesses as it stands is hostile to say the least, particularly in construction. Over regulation and government overreach are impeding the ability for businesses to grow and thrive. We need real reform and change, and we need government to stop picking winners and losers. These candidates are those who can bring that about and make New York State competitive again.”
