Jobs and Economic Growth
Congresswoman Stefanik was born and raised in an Upstate small business family – when she was a child, she watched as her parents risked everything to start their plywood distribution business. Over twenty years later, Elise’s family’s business works with over 1,000 small businesses in Upstate New York. Elise understands the hard work, long days and determination it takes for Main Street small businesses to be successful in Upstate New York.
She also understands how often times regulations and mandates from the federal government only stifle economic growth and job creation.
Now more than ever, Congress needs an Upstate voice that truly understands the unique needs of small businesses and will fight for Main Streets throughout the 21st Congressional District.
