Spires can help small business

The Daily Star

---- — I’m writing to show support for Levi Spires, the Republican running for New York’s 121st Assembly district.

Did you know Levi Spires decided to leave the Air Force to pursue business in central New York? In fact, his company Site-seeker Inc., where he was a partner and vice president of operations, grew to 25 employees during his four years.

I, too, am a small-business owner and know the extreme challenges meeting New York’s government’s demands and regulations. Last month alone required collecting and supplementing over $30,000 of fees and taxes. Try that, and keep the doors open!

Look around — do you see economic growth for the region? The incumbent should be retired with someone who has fresh ideas. It’s time to get New York’s government out of our pockets. It’s time to get them off our backs.

I recommend you look at this man. He will make some inroads.
