Greetings from Hon. Robin Schimminger to Aviation Conference Attendees
New York State Assemblyman Robin Schimminger (Erie, Niagara) expressed regrets for being unable to attend the Welcome and Opening Session of the New York Aviation Management Association’s 2012 Fall Conference and Exhibit Show in Niagara Falls, New York, but sent well wishes to attendees.
“I am pleased to send greetings to all attending the [conference] and to congratulate NYAMA on its 36th year of successful training and advocacy for New York's airport industry,” the Assemblyman wrote in a letter presented to NYAMA.
Stressing that airports are one of the economic engines that fuel growth in the communities they serve, Schimminger declared “the economic benefits of airports and the aviation industry in this state are truly immense.”
“As Chairman of the New York State Assembly’s Economic Development, Job Creation, Commerce and Industry Committee, I am well aware that New York air service is critical to the economic growth and well-being of this state and to the traveling public. A region’s ability to attract investment and jobs is directly related to the quality and cost of passenger air service. In addition, efforts to bring conventions, conferences, other events and tourists to a region are impacted by the cost of air travel,” Assemblyman Schimminger explained.
“The aviation industry helped to make New York the Empire State, and I want to thank you all for your efforts in keeping New York at the center of this ever-growing and vital industry. Best wishes for an enjoyable and productive conference,” Assemblyman Schimminger concluded.
