Albany, NY. January 16, 2013… The NYGOP released the following statement today in response to New York State Democratic Party Chairwoman Stephanie Miner’s announcement that she will be running for reelection as Mayor of Syracuse:
“We congratulate Stephanie Miner on her decision to run for reelection, and remind Syracuse voters that their city’s 8.9% unemployment rate is higher than both New York’s 7.9% rate and the Nation’s 7.6% rate.
“Voters wondering why job creation in Syracuse lags so far behind the rest of the state and Nation may want to look for a mayor whose time and attention isn’t devoted to running the Democratic Party of New York State.
“The people of Syracuse deserve a mayor focused less on Albany – and more on Syracuse.”
