CEO Comments

“New York is a disaster to conduct business in for many reasons…taxes are only one factor. Regulations are over-kill and very costly from a compliance standpoint. “King” Cuomo has taken the wrong path for New Yorkers.”

“Doing business in California and New York is psychologically like being hooked up to the matrix. These states make conditions extremely difficult for small businesses through both policy and the anti-business political sentiment that exists there. Businesses are actually treated like a necessary evil.”
