The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) has as one of its central missions the promotion of economic growth and the defense of private property rights by limiting the reach of government.  Toward that end, the AHI has partnered with local, regional, and national organizations to support activities aimed at bolstering entrepreneurship and expanding economic opportunities.

On Thursday, August 7, the AHI joined with the Clinton, New York, Chamber of Commerce to host an antique automobile exhibition by the H.H. Franklin Club in Cazenovia, New York.  The exhibition turned out a large crowd, which enjoyed the show and also shopped at the local farmer’s market, held weekly across the street from AHI headquarters.

“The AHI intends to undertake a wide variety of programs with local and regional Chambers of Commerce,” observed AHI Charter Fellow Robert Paquette.  “Soon we will be formally announcing a three-year partnership with the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, which is already leasing space in our building.  We thank Ferris Betrus, Executive Vice-President of the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, for his initiative in entering into a mutually beneficial exchange.  We have many other collaborative activities in mind, and our biggest challenge will be to help the community in lowering what can only be described as one of the most oppressive property tax burdens in New York State.”
