Erie County Executive Notes Investments in Genomic Center, Advanced Manufacturing as Keys to Economic Development

ERIE COUNTY, NY— Today, Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz issued this statement of support for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2014 State of the State address:

POLONCARZ STATEMENT: “Governor Cuomo’s focus on upstate New York is clearer than ever and I thank him for the commitment he has shown to strengthening Erie County and Western New York.  He is following through on the promise of the Buffalo Billion, with the proposed genomic medicine center and investments in advanced technology and manufacturing at Riverbend now poised to become realities. The transformation of Erie County’s economy is underway as new industries, new jobs, and new attitudes are reshaping our community. The Governor’s record of success spoke for itself during his address, with examples both in Erie County and across New York State. His leadership in Albany is having a profound positive impact in Erie County, and I look forward to working with Governor Cuomo and the Regional Economic Development Council to implement the ideas outlined in the State of the State address.”
