Under the leadership of a succession of tepid Governors hamstrung by their own ambitions for higher office, New York has lost the courageousness that once marked our politics. A fragile caucus in the State Senate and moneyed interests on State Street seem to prefer it this way – averse to the risks and thrills of the uncertainty and dynamism that gave us the Erie Canal, the State University of New York, the Niagara Power Project, and the New York Thruway.

New York’s subways, state parks, and public schools were once the envy of the world. But today our roads crumble, our bridges are ‘functionally obsolete,’ and our trains can barely run on time. Much of our manufacturing industry has collapsed, our middle class has been priced out, and our Upstate cities have been brutalized by elitist economic policies that have destroyed them with the crushing burdens of an ever-growing government that we cannot afford.

It’s time to reignite the New York we once knew – not with a bigger government, or more corporate welfare under the elusive guise of ‘economic development’ – but with more liberty, more entrepreneurship, and more justice for New Yorkers.
