Campaign themes


Hannon's Newsday profile highlighted the following as his priorities: "Hannon said unchecked borrowing has brought “the state of New York right onto the cliff of fiscal peril.” He cited the state’s lack of “an established plan for distributing the education monies” as an example of New York’s need for greater fiscal controls. The state’s budget fails to address core services, and also doesn’t include a viable job growth plan, he said. Hannon opposed the state MTA payroll tax, which he cited as “one of the most devious taxes because it hits everybody, every day, in every walk of life.” He said the MTA is in need of audits. Hannon said the MTA could raise more revenue by charging drivers at the East River bridge crossings, but he is “not so sure the entryways are prepared for it” yet. He said one of the state’s major challenges in the coming year will be implementing new federal healthcare laws." [2]
