State of New York Archives: on Jobs

Tom Foley: OpEd: His company moved 3,000 jobs to Mexico

Foley said that Gov. Malloy "did run this state into a ditch. You've broken this economy." The governor was unbowed. Capitalizing on an opportunity to highlight the callous corporate maneuvers that he has said characterized Foley's career as a private-equity manager, Malloy cast his opponent as out of touch with ordinary residents: "I didn't lose 3,000 jobs on a company that I owned," Malloy said. "I didn't move jobs to Mexico. I don't own a $10 million house and a $5 million boat and a $1 million plane and not pay taxes in the state of Connecticut. That's not who I am."

Complaining about what he called overly generous state investments in corporations during Malloy's tenure, Foley said, "The idea of the governor and his staff negotiating with a very sophisticated group of businesspeople--I'm a little worried for Connecticut taxpayers."

Foley listed corporations he said had eliminated jobs in Connecticut over the last three and a half years.

Wendy Long: Administration has not created jobs in upstate New York

Long accused Gillibrand of doing nothing to create jobs in upstate New York. "As I go around upstate, I see towns with empty storefronts, factories that have been shuttered, paint peeling off of buildings and people desperate for work," Long said. Gillibrand stood by her three-year record in the Senate, and hit Long back on her pledge to not raise taxes to balance the federal budget.

Scott Noren: We need a jobs bill with national job-stimulating potential

Dr. Scott Noren, U.S. Senate candidate running as a Progressive Independent, comments as follows on the Republican debate: "There is a resemblance between Wendy Long, Bob Turner, George Maragos, and Kirsten Gillibrand. Two of them never wrote a successful jobs bill (Turner or Gillibrand) and none have yet to write a proposed jobs bill with national job-stimulating potential either."

Joe DioGuardi: Democrats have created a toxic environment for NY jobs

Gillibrand says she doesn't think it's possible to tell how many jobs a politician has created, adding, "The number one thing we should be doing to create jobs in this state--in this country right now--is getting access to capital into our small businesses."

DioGuardi counters, "Not only did you not create jobs, we've lost many jobs. You've got to be aggressive about what you do to change that and one of the things is: we're in a toxic environment in this state--mainly because of your party."
