Associated Builders & Contractors, Empire State Chapter Endorses Dutchess County Executive Molinaro for Re-election

Associated Builders & Contractors, Empire State Chapter President Brian Sampson today announced the endorsement of Marcus Molinaro for re-election as Dutchess County Executive.

The endorsement comes after a thorough examination by ABC of where the candidates stand on issues relating to free enterprise, fair competition and government transparency.

“By looking out for taxpayers and rejecting the use of costly Project Labor Agreements, County Executive Molinaro has proven himself to be a fighter for free enterprise, fair competition and government transparency,” said Sampson. “With local governments prohibitively restricted by the mandates of New York State, County Executive Molinaro has stood against the big government policies that have hindered growth for so long, finding creative solutions to hold the line on taxes and controlling spending. In doing so, he has helped small businesses grow in Dutchess County. On behalf of our over 400 members across the State, including over 100 in the Hudson Valley that employ thousands of hard working men and women, I am proud to endorse the County Executive for re-election.”

“I am pleased and grateful to be endorsed by Associated Building and Contractors. Our state and region must foster a business friendly environment in order to provide the most jobs and opportunity for the people who live here. My administration will continue to support fair and open competition in Dutchess County,” said County Executive Molinaro.  “As taxpayers, we all benefit by having the best ideas competing for business. I am especially appreciative of the hard working men and women who make up the membership of this vital organization. I want to personally thank Brian Sampson for his endorsement,” said County Executive Molinaro.
