The North Country is among top winners in Gov. Cuomo’s regional economic development competition – 103.2 million dollars. The announcement this morning capped months of work by a diverse group of community leaders. After the grip and grin onstage, Gov. Cuomo added a shout-out to the NC regional council: “Good job, North Country!”
The mood was electric as the announcements trickled out. A large contingent of folks from the region are in Albany for the ceremony, including Brian Mann, who’ll have more on what it all means today during All before 5, and during regional news tomorrow morning.
Western New York, Central new York and Long Island were other top winners, but all the regions won at least $40 million. 720 projects. &785.5 million dollars in total.
