NY's Leading Fiscally Conservative PAC Pledges Money and Support in Targeted State Senate Races

New York-September 24...New Yorkers for Growth, the political action committee dedicated to bringing responsible fiscal policies back to New York State government, today announced its endorsement of Bob Cohen against incumbent Senator Suzi Oppenheimer in the 37th District.

Mr. Cohen, a proven business leader, currently owns and operates a small real estate and construction company in Manhattan. For over 25 years, he has dedicated himself to transforming underdeveloped residential properties into attractive, affordable spaces for families, students, and entrepreneurs. An active member of the community, Mr. Cohen served as a member of the Scarsdale Volunteer Fire Department for over 17 years.

"New York families and small businesses can no longer afford to pay the price for irresponsible fiscal policy in Albany," said Liz Feld, New Yorkers for Growth spokesperson and the former mayor of Larchmont, NY. "We need to begin electing candidates - of either Party - who will advocate spending restraint and pro-growth business policies. New York State can turn itself around, but we need to begin electing candidates with the guts and foresight to do what's necessary to achieve that. New Yorkers for Growth is confident that Bob Cohen has what it takes to help move this state in the right direction."

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of New Yorkers for Growth, an organization that has been a leader in the movement to return New York State to fiscal sanity,” said Mr. Cohen. “New Yorkers cannot afford another year of high taxes, out-of-control spending and representatives in Albany who are beholden to special interests. We need to elect new leaders who are committed to a fiscally responsible government.”

New Yorkers for Growth (NYFG) is a non-partisan political action committee that supports candidates for office committed to returning sound fiscal practices to New York State government. For more information about New Yorkers for Growth, please visit:
