WNY business leaders lay out concerns to candidates for governor
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WGRZ) — The Buffalo Niagara Partnership, the region's chamber of commerce, is making sure the concerns of Western New York's businesses are heard ahead of election day.
On Friday, Gov. Kathy Hochul joined a room full of executives and other business leaders to answer questions about everything from unemployment insurance to Brownfield tax credits.
The Partnership held an identical event with Congressman Lee Zeldin on Oct. 6.
