Constellation Throwing Money Around in New York

Dienstag 23. Februar 2010 von htm

Constellation Brands, whose growth as a power player in the alcohol industry recently earned it a spot on Marin Institute’s website as one of the world’s top alcohol-producing companies, can now add political influence to its list of accomplishments, thanks to a $25,000 contribution to the re-election campaign of New York State Governor David Paterson.
Constellation, which prides itself on its reputation as the world’s largest wine producer (by volume), contributed said 25K just one week before Governor Paterson announced his 2010/2011 budget, which included a proposal to allow wine to be sold in New York’s 19,000 grocery stores. Current law only allows wine to be sold in the 2,700 liquor stores in the state. (Source: Marin Institute, 2/21/10)
