Dolgeville, New York – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik toured Gehring-Tricot Warp Knit Fabrics and discussed issues facing small businesses.

“Our small businesses are the backbone of our economy in Upstate New York and the North Country,” Stefanik said. “Today, I toured Gehring-Tricot in Dolgeville to learn more about their work and hear firsthand the concerns facing our small businesses, so I can bring them to the highest levels.

I will continue to advocate for their needs.”
