ENDORSEMENT OF MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION
With just six days remaining until Election Day 2020, State Assemblyman Mark Walczyk announced Wednesday that he has been endorsed by MIPAC, the political action committee arm of the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY).
MACNY is a 501(C) (6) made up of more than 300 organizations and businesses, consisting of industrial companies, law and accounting firms, insurance agencies, financial institutions and numerous others, from throughout Upstate and Central New York. Members of MACNY create and deliver critical products and services around the globe and across New York. Companies that belong to MACNY employ more than 50,000 employees across the state.
MIPAC Chairman Dean Burrows stated, "Each election cycle, MIPAC seeks to endorse pro-business candidates who will advocate on our behalf. Mark Walczyk embodies both of these qualities as the Assemblyman representing the 116th district. In his first term, Mark supported many pieces of legislation critical to our State's manufacturing success, and throughout his term visited many of our member companies to learn more about them and their needs. MIPAC is pleased to endorse Mark Walczyk for another term in the New York State Assembly."
"The health of the manufacturing sector is a great litmus test for the strength of an economy and New York manufacturers need to play a key role in the economic recovery of our State," said Assemblyman Mark Walczyk. "I’m honored to be endorsed by MACNY and look forward to fighting alongside them to push for business friendly policies in Albany. We need to listen to the voice of those businesses make products here in New York - that's how we'll bounce back from this pandemic and keep the Front Yard of America a great place to live, work and raise a family for years to come.”
