"Dear Mr. President:" Bring this Central New York product to the White House

SHERRILL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - When President Donald Trump settles into the White House, a package from Central New York will be waiting for him.

Inside will be samples of Liberty Tabletop, flatware made by Sherrill Manufacturing.

It's the only flatware made anywhere in the United States, so the owners feel it's the most appropriate for the president.

Also inside the package, co-owners Greg Owens and Matt Roberts included a letter for Donald Trump.

A portion of the letter says,"It seems only fitting that you, your family, visiting guests, and dignitaries should dine with fine flatware that is made right here in the United States of America."

The company already does business with the U.S. Government, and supplies flatware to the military.

Sherrill Manufacturing isn't only "Made in America," but its focus is "Made in Central New York," too. Many of its suppliers, like its polish and boxing, come from local companies.

The owners hope to get President Trump's attention from the samples, but also hopes the product gets attention from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and brand new Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-NY), who visited the factory as a state Assemblywoman.
