State Of The State

 

Yesterday, January 4th, Governor Cuomo addressed New York with his second State of the State outlining his Agenda for 2012.

You can find a outline of the comprehensive agenda here: State of the State

We are especially excited Governor Cuomo promised:

"A Continued Commitment to Minority and Women-Owned Businesses: To build on last year's efforts to expand economic opportunities for minority and women owned business enterprises (MWBEs), Governor Cuomo announced new measures to continue support for MWBEs. With credit access difficulties hindering the competitiveness of many MWBEs, New York will extend credit to give MWBE contractors the backing they need to succeed. The program will support at least $200 million in contracting for MWBE firms."

 

Our company President is also excited to hear about the New NY Leaders Initiative. Having a strong background in Political Science, and personal interest in government service.

"Train Leaders for a New New York: To help address the state's human capital crisis, Governor Cuomo announced that his administration will launch the New New York Leaders Initiative to create opportunities for the state's next generation to dedicate their careers to public service. The first component of the initiative, the Student Intern Program, will assign students to a particular branch of government to provide hands-on experience for interns to interact with government leaders and policy makers. The second component, the Empire State Fellows Program, will be a full-time leadership training program that will prepare the next generation of talented professionals who are members of underrepresented groups for careers as state policy makers. The New NY Leaders Initiative is designed to renew the connection between young people and the state and ensure that state government is diverse, talented, and prepared to lead the way for decades to come."

Having had a chance to intern with the New York State Insurance Department, Health and Frauds Beauru, during her time at Siena College, Caitlin believes this to be an extremely promising opportunity for NYS. She believes that her internship was an invaluable experience and helped her in many ways including the formation of this company.
