Syracuse, N.Y. - The Governor pledged support of a new "Syracuse Surge" initiative in his State of the State.
Syracuse City Officials say that the initiative is designed to ignite economic growth and opportunity in the city of Syracuse and the Central New York region. They say they are investing in technology, education, workforce training and development, housing, and infrastructure. The hope is those investments will attract additional economic investment from the private sector.
Mayor Ben Walsh is expected to detail more of the particulars about the program in his State of the City Address Thursday night.
