I Wish Senator Shumar was My Senator!
New York Senator Charles Schumer recently launched his "I Love NY Brew" Campaign inspired his trips across the state visiting the many craft breweries.
"...it was easy to see that craft brewing is actually one of our fastest growing industries in upstate New York and Long Island. . . I'm announcing a brand new initiative called the 'I Love NY Brew' campaign, to help get local brews on local shelves and into local menus. This is a call to restaurants, bars, convenience and fuel stores statewide to sell our locally brewed beer."
Schumer said he is going to ask the New York State Restaurant Association and the National Association of Convenience Stores to carry locally brewed beer, will be working with the New York State Brewers Association to help promote small breweries create jobs in the state.
The project won't have a budget, and will run by word of mouth out of Schumer's office.
Wouldn't it be great if Texas had such a forward thinking legislator; someone who wants to grow jobs in the state and collect more tax revenue?
