At a roundtable discussion Monday, a group of central New York business leaders explained to U.S. Rep. John Katko how tax reform would benefit them — and their employees.
The meeting, held at Progressive Expert Consulting in Syracuse, featured 20 business leaders from the Syracuse area. Two panelists were from Cayuga County: Joanne Cross, owner of Cross Filtration in Moravia, and Drew Wilcox, vice president and general manager of Nucor Steel in Auburn.
Cross believes tax reform will help her company, which produces wet filtration press cloths for manufacturers, mining operations and water treatment systems. She said the tax plan would allow Cross Filtration to continue to pay for employees’ health insurance coverage and increase wages for her employees.
