The need for more job creation and the tax policy proposals of President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Gov. Mitt Romney were at the forefront of voters minds as they cast their ballots Tuesday.
LoHud.com reporters interviewed voters from throughout the Lower Hudson Valley, many of whom, however they voted, said they were hoping for the government to assist in job creation and make other investments in boosting the economy.
“Four years is not enough time for Obama,” Jean Lewis, 24, a graduate student at the College of New Rochelle, said in a story today by LoHud.com Tax Watch columnist David McKay Wilson. “And Romney was looking to cut back on student loans. That’s not good for me.”
Romney supporters said Obama’s fiscal policies have not helped the economy and a new direction was needed.
“I feel right now that there’s nothing to lose by voting for Romney,” said John Apicella, 48, of Mahopac, an assistant building manager for the City of Yonkers. “The economy is terrible. There are no jobs out there. It doesn’t seem like it can get any worse.”
