    NYS commitment to tourism advertising if much appreciated in supporting the Dutchess Tourism ad campaign. In 2012 tourist spent $475 generating over $28 million in sales tax and over 9,000 jobs are sustained. Dollars generated by tourist also help to keep property taxes down and generate dollars to help provide local services

    These completely false commercials are misleading and slanted. The governor has no problem telling gun companies to get out of New York because the leftist base he caters to at every whim thinks he should. Then out of the other side of his mouth he claims to welcome new businesses! This man only cares about himself, NYC, and the radical left that is causing this once great state to rot at the head. As long as Cuomo is in office, jobs will leave the state in exodus fashion for states that actually care about providing opportunities for people to prosper and to enjoy their freedom, economic or otherwise.

    The ads are clearly running in NY and targeting NY citizens not businesses outside of NY.

    They seem to be filled with outlandish lies and should be stopped by the FCC. We would expect the NY Bureau of Consumer Protection and the attorney general Eric Schneiderman to get involved, but all New Yorkers know what a fraud Schneiderman is. A political pawn. A partisan tool. NY is corrupt beyond belief now and Cuomo and his girlfriend don't even have to pay their fair share of property taxes.

    It is disgusting what anti Constitutionalists like Cuomo are doing to New York and those that live outside of its great city. Simple disgusting. It is time for it to stop.

    It's too expensive to live in NY. Workers won't want to move here cost of living too high.

    Anyone with business sense, looking to START a business in NY will do their own research. No amount of false advertising is going to convince them that NY has a business friendly environment. Yet ANOTHER waste of taxpayer money!
