Campaign themes


Falk's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

  • Excerpt: "Andrew decided to run for office because he feels the needs of the middle class are not being met. He is concerned that our elected officials have not been responsive to the challenges of this difficult economy and he worries that the middle class cannot thrive and grow unless they are a priority in Albany."

Time for MTA Tax to end

  • Excerpt: "To shift the MTA's fiscal problems onto businesses is unfair, bad for business and ultimately bad for New York. It is time to end the MTA tax."

Stop Common Core

  • Excerpt: "Our children deserve better and so do we. We must raise our voices together and stop common core."

Tax Relief

  • Excerpt: "When Albany has a good idea, Albany should pay for it. For too long our elected officials have gone up to Albany and 'pushed down' legislation onto our schools, towns and counties. If any new legislation comes down from Albany, it should be fully funded so our local taxes don't increase."
  • Excerpt: "I also am proposing tax credits for businesses that hire employees because the private sector is the engine that runs the economy. Government's role should be to encourage job growth and help businesses bet on themselves. This proposal offsets the risk that businesses worry about when they expand their workforce with a 15% state tax credit when they hire new employees."
