’Tis two days before Christmas and all through our land, wishes for peace and harmony, and an economy to expand. As Dancer and Prancer lead Santa’s aerial sloop, here’s hoping he brings the gifts listed below in this annual Loop:
Jeff Jacobson: who at the new Xerox soon takes the helm, hoping his growth plan does deliver and overwhelm;
Dan Burns: another year as market leader for M&T Bank would certainly be a hoot, with plans for new headquarters coming to boot;
Reps. Chris Collins and Tom Reed: after hitching your wagons to the right presidential horse, that Donald Trump selects for the nation the correct course;
Joel Seligman: for UR another strong year would be a mighty fine gift brought by a team of reindeer;
Mayor Lovely Warren: a meteoric rise for the city succumbs to your chase, arriving in time for another mayoral race;
Jeff Clarke: a lofty price for Kodak’s Prosper business and booming Park will make the spot below the Christmas tree a bit less stark;
Tom Wilmot and the Wilmot clan: a successful launch for its gambling space, and a strong remake of the firm’s mall named Marketplace;
Rob Sands: at Constellation Brands, growth of Corona and your Ballast craft beer, giving the company and its shareholders plenty to cheer;
Marty Mucci: a robust economy driving many new small firm spots, giving Paychex lots of revenue to keep in its pots;
Steve Dubnik: as you take over the Strong’s kingdom of play, enjoy that fun place on every day;
Bob Morgan: ongoing success as you bring the city to life, fueled by awesome projects facing limited strife;
Ken Glazer: pleasure at seeing the new gleaming tower, and success remaking the city of flower;
Danny and Colleen Wegman: expansions to the states who successfully vie, but hoping Rochester remains the apple of your eye;
Tom Golisano: a continued climb upward in Forbes’ annual ranks, and support for this community, which gives him its thanks;
Area St. Bonaventure fans and alums: after that cruel NCAA rejection, another Rochester victory and a March Madness selection;
The Buffalo Bills: OK Santa, all we have asked for is a single playoff slot, maybe next year you could give it your really best shot;
And for the Rochester area this year: fast movement in the promising area of photonics, which provides the region with just the right tonics.
