Randy Altschuler, the Long Island businessman who is once again running against U.S. Rep. Tim Bishop in this year’s race for congress, kicked off a tour to explain his 10-point job creation plan at in Southold Monday morning.
Sea Tow started as a small family business in 1983 and now includes more than 100 locations across the U.S., Europe, Australia, Asia and the Caribbean. It was founded by Capt. Joseph Frohnhoefer, who was by local nursing facility , after the U.S. Coast Guard stopped responding to non-emergency calls.
“My 10-point plan is focused on providing entrepreneurs the tools they need to dream big and take risks so they can start new businesses and create new jobs right here on Long Island,” Altschuler said in a statement. “Capt. Frohnhoefer and his employees over the last 30 years did build this business, not the government. To give entrepreneurs today the same opportunity, we need to get back to rewarding hard work, not discouraging it, and celebrating success, not vilifying it.”
At Sea Tow, Altschuler discussed the details of his 10-point jobs plan with Sea Tow management and employees, and listened to employees’ opinions on the state of Long Island’s economy.
