PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy took a tour of the North Country today.
They were in Plattsburgh to look at how several state funded projects are working.
Governor Andrew Cuomo embraced the city in him, and took the bus, all over Plattsburgh. Last year, the North Country received 103-million dollars to go toward 70 projects.
"There is an energy in the North Country that is new, that is different, that is growing, that is developing a momentum, I believe we are just getting started," Gov. Cuomo said.
He wanted to see the projects that received funding, so he took a bus tour. The first stop, the Strand Theater.
"It's about the arts, it's about culture, it's about bringing the history back," the Governor said.
397,000 dollars is being used to restore the 1924 performing arts center.
Continuing on the tour, the Governor also shook hands with Bombardier Transportation employees. The manufacturing company was able to expand its production and add jobs. It's still looking for skilled workers to train.
"If we have the natural talent, we'll bring them in and make them professionals in what we do," Vice President of Bombardier Transportation Sales, Bob Furniss said.
While cruising through the North Country, Governor Cuomo talked about expanding broadband - housing and agricultural programs, he says they all reflect the diversity of the North Country economy.
"There's obviously a lot of progress, there's a lot of energy, there's a lot of excitement," the Governor added.
Governor Cuomo also heard 750 million dollars worth of project proposals that the North Country would like to work toward next year. The Plattsburgh Airport and International Paper in Ticonderoga are two examples.
