CONKLIN, N.Y. (News Channel 34) — Republican Congressman Richard Hanna is getting better acquainted with the people and businesses of Greater Binghamton as his district would expand to include most of Broome County should he be re-elected next month.
Hanna visited Maines Paper and Food Service in Conklin Thursday. The company delivers restaurant supplies throughout the Northeast, as well as distributing food for national chains such as Burger King, Wendy’s, Olive Garden and Red Lobster. Hanna used the tour as an opportunity to promote what he calls his business-friendly tax policy. He wants to lower the corporate tax rate to 25 percent while closing special interest loopholes. He wants to extend the Bush-era tax cuts. And Hanna wants to lower taxes on money brought to the US by American companies who made profits overseas.
