Ivanka Trump tours Suit-Kote Corporation with Congresswoman Tenney


The first daughter of the US made a visit to Cortland County Monday.

Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump joined Congresswoman Claudia Tenney on a tour of the Suit-Kote Corporation in Tully.

According to Tenney and Suit-Kote President and CEO Frank Suits, Suit-Kote was handpicked by Trump for the event.

Following the tour, Trump and Tenney took part in a demonstration where they helped pave a road.

The company works on roads for every level of government. 

It works on thousands of miles of roadway in the Northeast each year, either protecting roads in good condition or paving and repairing those in bad shape.

Suits says he was surprised by the amount of information Trump knew about what they do. 

“Her questions were actually very specific about different types of equipment and what they do and where they’re made. She talked to a few of our mechanics that were busy repairing them in quite extensive detail.  I was very impressed,” said Suits.

Following the tour Tenney and Trump participated in a roundtable discussion with Suits about how tax reform has effected his company and other businesses. 

Suits says the reform has allowed his employees to receive a net five percent raise.

He says two and a half percent of it comes from money not taken out from their paychecks due to government withholdings and then they matched the other two and a half.

Tenney says having Ivanka Trump show support for the work being done is a great boost.
