State Senator Golden stresses the importance of community and local businesses in the heart of a Brooklyn independent retailer.

Senator Martin J. Golden appeared at a private function in Borough Park, Brooklyn this past Thursday night to promote community growth, development and the power of locally-owned businesses. The event, held at independent appliance retailer AJ Madison, brought together influential members of the Borough Park community for a brief discussion on the importance of businesses in the Brooklyn community.

A Brooklyn resident and former small business owner, Senator Golden has years of hands-on experience "Marty continues to stand behind our community's needs," said Michael Gross, CEO and owner of AJ Madison. "He understands the struggles of business owners." After a small reception, Gross and Golden spoke to the rest of the crowd about their concerns for the future of local business.

"New York State is doing everything they can to cripple local business," expressed a local grocer.

Senator Golden explicitly stated his faith in the community, as well as a much-needed change in Albany. "We want to keep the business where it is, and not have to move to [places elsewhere like] Hoboken," the senator stated.

After an hour of drinks and discussion, the event concluded and the crowd dispersed after much discussion and deliberation over the future of Brooklyn businesses.
