Akshar, Fiala lay out plans to bolster Southern Tier economy

BINGHAMTON – State Senate hopefuls Fred Akshar and Barbara Fiala are touting pledges to be the voice of Southern Tier economic development in the state’s Capitol.



Akshar (R) announced Tuesday his “Fair Share for the Southern Tier” plan which he says will kick-start the Souther Tier’s economy, provide a boost manufacturers and small businesses, and create jobs in the sluggish Southern Tier region.

Akshar is proposing demand for more economic development aid from Albany to support existing businesses and attract new ones. He’s also calling for a tax cut by eliminating a state imposed energy surcharge for business owners, as well as extension of the STAR tax relief program for property owners.
