Welcome to the New York State Senate Republican Campaign Committee’s new website.
Whether we come from a small town, the suburbs or a big city, millions of New Yorkers share the same common goals and aspirations:
- We all want safe, secure and healthy communities.
- We want a stronger, more vibrant economy… with thousands of new job opportunities that hold the promise of a brighter future.
- We want outstanding local schools that truly prepare our children for success… and we want young New Yorkers to have an affordable path to a college education.
- We want a healthy environment, with clean air and water, beautiful parks and green, wide open spaces.
- We want a New York where women are guaranteed the same rights and opportunities as men… where women’s health care is a top priority… and where discrimination, violence and abuse are not tolerated.
- We want a government that is responsible, affordable and accountable -- and that actually helps New Yorkers achieve their dreams.
These goals and priorities that are shared by millions of New Yorkers are also precisely the same goals and priorities that drive the New York State Senate Republican Conference. || Read more
After many years of late budgets and dysfunction, Senate Republicans have set partisanship aside and worked to restore people’s faith and confidence that state government is working again. They are addressing the true needs and concerns of taxpayers and pointing our state in a new, positive direction for a brighter future.
For the third consecutive year, the Senate Republican Majority has kept their promise to hardworking New York families by holding the line on wasteful government spending, providing tax relief to individuals and businesses, and helping to create new jobs and a stronger economy across the state.
New York State’s Senate Republicans have a clear vision to help achieve a better, stronger, more prosperous future for the Empire State:
- A New York that is more affordable -- for families, young New Yorkers, senior citizens and small businesses throughout the State
- A stronger, more vibrant economy, with thousands of new job opportunities
- Great schools, a clean, healthy environment and an outstanding quality of life in every community
- A government that is responsible, affordable and accountable -- and that actually helps New Yorkers achieve their dreams
These goals and priorities – aspirations shared by millions of New Yorkers – are what the Senate Republicans are committed to achieving.
The Senate Republicans: Working to Ensure a Brighter Future for Every New Yorker
YOUR 2014 CANDIDATES
Michael Venditto - SD8
Michael cares deeply about the plight of Long Island’s middle class. A homeowner, he understands the impact of high property taxes on hardworking middle class families, young professionals and senior citizens who struggle to make ends meet on fixed incomes. As a Nassau County Legislator, Michael was a bridge between government and private businesses to promote new housing opportunities for families—and he never voted to raise county taxes.

Sue Serino - SD41
Sue was elected to the Hyde Park Town Board in 2010 and then the Dutchess County Legislature in 2011, beating an incumbent with 62% of the vote. As a county legislator, I’ve stood up for taxpayers, despite the pressure to raise taxes. I was one of only three Republicans to vote NO on the home energy sales tax. Taxes are high enough and government needs to learn to live within its means. You can be sure I’ll take the same kind of principled stands in Albany.

George Amedore - SD46
George’s passion for serving others is the reason he successfully pursued a seat in the State Assembly, representing Schenectady and Montgomery Counties. As a member of the Legislature, George brought his businessman’s judgment and commonsense principles to state government, championing lower taxes, cutting the bureaucracy and advocating the entrepreneurial spirit of New York’s businesses to spur job creation. From a long-sought property tax cap, to the first real effort to reign in government spending in more than a decade and working in a bi-partisan effort, George Amedore acted in the best interest on behalf of all New Yorkers.
