The former mayor of Syracuse was asked what she would do to convince young people to stay in upstate New York.

"I think you have to completely and totally eliminate the economic development policies which have been abject failures and rife with corruption and you have to eliminate that bureaucracy and you have to take that money and invest it in infrastructure," explained Miner.

Miner says she would also lower property taxes by eliminating the local share of Medicaid -- shifting those costs to the state.
