Disclaimer: I have not seen the video. I personally believe that Bill Daly is well intentioned and works hard every day on economic development issues. Rich Alexander before him also worked hard to encourage economic development in our great county. I do question, however, a video produced that highlights the accomplishments of the IDA since 2006. This is an election year for the Republican County Executive and his Republican Legislature majority. It is highly inappropriate to blatantly use taxpayer money for an election year highlight reel that mirrors the years that Edwards and Daly came to power in 2006. Edwards and Daly will no doubt say that "we politicians" all do it. I retort, prove it and I further challenge these two normally decent men to regain their morality and rise above the temptation of using taxpayer money to fund self-promotion videos in election years.

Allowing CCID to end run the high cost of doing business in NYS by handing out PILOT and other incentives does not address the real problem of the high costs of doing business in NYS. It only puts the tax burden on all the others excluded from said incentives. Exemptions are not the norm, but become the rule to get business to come here. Unfair to those businesses trying to stay here.
