Unshackle Upstate Endorses John Cahill for Attorney General

Oct 18th, 2014 | By | Category: Political

Unshackle Upstate (www.unshackleupstate.com), through its political action committee UPAC, announced its endorsement of John Cahill for New York State Attorney General.

In announcing the pro-taxpayer group’s first endorsement in a statewide race, Unshackle Upstate’s executive director Brian Sampson praised Cahill as a strong candidate with the vision and integrity to tackle the Albany-status quo and stand up for Upstate communities, taxpayers and small businesses.

“John Cahill has the experience and character New Yorkers deserve from the State’s chief law enforcement officer. He understands that the Office of Attorney General should be independent, just and fair to all New Yorkers. For too long, the Attorney General’s office has been a complicit contributor to New York’s reputation as the tax and regulation capital of the country. John Cahill will change that and we are proud to support him,” said Sampson.

“I admire the work Unshackle Upstate does to protect New York’s taxpayers making me both humbled and honored to have their support,” said Cahill. “Our state’s excessive taxes and regulations, driven by New York City lawmakers, have suffocated our Upstate communities for far too long. As Attorney General, I look forward to working with groups like Unshackle Upstate to make real changes to ease that burden on working families across our state, giving them the opportunity they need to develop and succeed.”

Last month, Unshackle Upstate endorsed a bipartisan group of 23 legislative candidates. Following today’s endorsement of John Cahill for Attorney General, Unshackle Upstate and its leadership team will continue to monitor other races across the state and may make additional endorsements prior to November 4.
