On Tuesday, July 26, RPCI hosted a visit from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as he announced the formation of his Western New York Regional Economic Development Council. "With the Regional Councils, we will empower individual areas like Western New York to chart their own course for job creation and growth and we will send a clear message that New York is open for business," said Gov. Cuomo. "This is going to be the foundation for changes across the state economically," added Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy, who will chair the WNY panel as well as 9 other Regional Councils. President and CEO Donald L. Trump, MD, FACP, Deputy Director Candace S. Johnson, PhD, and several other RPCI senior leaders were among the many area business and community leaders invited to the event.
