Empire State Chapter Endorses Keith Wofford for Attorney General

ALBANY, NY – The Empire State Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors, representing more than 425 merit shop contractors across New York State, through its Political Action Committee, announced its endorsement of Keith Wofford for Attorney General.

“We believe that Keith, unlike his opponent, has a high moral compass and the integrity to do what is right for the people of this state,” said Brian Sampson, President of ABC, Empire State. “Unlike his opponent, he will apply a fair and even hand to the laws and regulations and not let any campaign donors, or the Governor, dictate the positions his office will enforce. Keith Wofford is the only Attorney General candidate that will lead New York to a better future.”

The Association believes that Keith Wofford will fight for sensible regulatory reforms and a reduction in regulations while supporting fair and open competition. As a native of Upstate New York, Mr. Wofford has seen first-hand the devasting impact that an overzealous, ultra-regulatory government can have on a community. He knows that revitalizing the economy for the entire state is critical to the survival of small businesses and will encourage more families to call New York state home.

“We support fair and open competition, not politicians who favor funding their campaign accounts over serving their constituency,” said Sampson. “We are proud to endorse Keith Wofford for Attorney General and encourage voters to support him on Election Day.”
