Jimino cites endorsement for McLaughlin’s push for critical unfunded mandate relief

Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Melrose) today was endorsed by Renseelaer County Executive Kathleen Jimino in his bid for re-election to the state assembly in the 107th district. Jimino noted that McLaughlin has been a tireless advocate on behalf of Rensselaer County when it comes to stopping the suffocating mandates that hurt local municipalities. Jimino also pointed out McLaughlin’s support and advocacy to reinstating the Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) for seniors to help them afford to pay for the medicine they need.

“Steve McLaughlin has been a strong voice for tax relief, mandate relief, and the government reforms that are vital to making New York State a sought after destination for families and businesses once again,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen Jimino. “I know that when re-elected to the State Assembly, Steve will continue to fight the status quo and business as usual attitude in Albany that has brought us overwhelming taxes, regulations and mandates that have limited our ability to provide the local services that our residents rely on. I'm proud to endorse Steve McLaughlin for re-election to the state assembly. He’s the ally in Albany we need.”

“While I’m down in Albany helping rebuild and restructure Albany’s broken policies, Kathy Jimino continues to be a proven leader here in Rensselaer County,” said McLaughlin. “Kathy and I share the values of lower taxes, an end to unfunded mandates, preserving the programs county residents rely on, and protecting middle-class families and our seniors from higher taxes. We both are committed to making sure residents can live, work and raise a family right here in Rensselaer County. I’m honored to have her endorsement and I look forward to continuing our work together.”
