Lupinacci: Ready to Help Long Islanders Get Back to Work

Chad Lupinacci, the Republican, Conservative, Independence, and Working Families Party candidate for the New York State Assembly, 10th District, today outlined his plan to help jump-start New York’s sluggish economy.

“As I have visited thousands of homes in the Tenth Assembly District, residents have repeatedly identified the state of the economy as their top concern.  Many of these residents are struggling to pay their bills.  As your Assemblyman, I will work with my colleagues in both the Assembly and Senate to stimulate the job market to make sure that residents can continue to live and thrive on Long Island,” stated Lupinacci.

New York Works is a comprehensive approach to stimulate job growth and the economy.  It includes the following proposals:

  • Establish a program for new businesses that includes:  (1) a fifty percent reduction in application fees for the first years; (2) eliminating business income taxes for the first year; and (3) reducing the income tax rate for years two and three;


  • Offer a small business tax credit to those businesses with an income of less than $250,000;


  • Tax credits for each new job created, with additional credits provided if the business hires someone who is currently unemployed or a veteran;


  • Foster the growth of regional open access laboratories that provide work space, laboratory equipment, and supplies to displaced scientists, engineers, and inventors and graduate students to practice and hone their skills; and


  • Increase funding to Long Island school districts to maintain existing jobs; and


  • Create and encourage small business development in the 110 corridor.


“Creating and retaining jobs is my number one priority.  I want to work to keep our young people here and not lose their talents to other parts of the state or country.  My proposal will bring more businesses here, keep the ones we have, and reduce unemployment.”

Just words Chad.As a South Huntington BOE member you have cut substitute teacher's pay 25% and we also have the lowest paid sub custodian and paraprofessionals rates in the area.These are the people who are with our children in the schools and shouldn't we as parents expect the best possible available? Just a thought.

Bill - 261 people in the SHUFSD make over $100,000 a year. The outgoing Superintendent made TWICE AS MUCH as the governor. We should be reducing salaries in the district.

< As a school board member, he could only comply with rules beyond his control. As a legislator, he can fix those rules. Check in with some facts Bill L. . . F2BM . .

The Super had a house, a driver, meals paid, and a helicopter like the Governor too. Socialism doesn't work Big-e, but thanks for trying. F2BM . . .
