The Greater NY Chamber hosted a meeting at the Coffee House Club in NYC on February 11th with special guest speaker NYS Comptroller Tom DiNapoli. The meeting was cohosted and moderated by Howard Teich of New Democratic Dimensions and focused on what NYS could do to gain back the trust for politics that has taken a hit with over 20 NYS politicians being forced to resign because of ethical & legal problems.
We at the Chamber always want to level the playing field for businesses, civic leaders and politicians who play by the rules stated Jaffe. There is a right way and a wrong way to accomplish your goals and we at the Chamber pride ourselves in helping our members and the politicians who represent us get it right!
