New York State’s Comptroller
Fellow New Yorkers –
I know times are tough for many of us right now. Inflation and gas prices are hitting New York families hard, many people feel unsafe due to rising gun violence, and a radical right wing is shredding women’s rights while dangerously denying reality on everything from climate science to election results to vaccines.
I grew up in a middle class, union household and I understand the financial pressures families are facing. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my years in public service, it’s that New Yorkers are resilient, strong and compassionate. We don’t hide from challenges, and we don’t give up when things are tough. I know our communities will recover from the challenging times we are facing and come out stronger and more prepared for the future.
Achieving that future requires smart planning, and an honest accounting of where we are and what we can do better. And that is why I am asking for your support as I run for State Comptroller. As an independent voice on state and local government finances, my office identifies waste to ensure the accountability and transparency taxpayers deserve.
My management of our state pension fund protects the retirement security of over a million state and local public employees. And through my engagement with the companies we invest in, I have fought for corporate responsibility on key issues like climate change, worker rights, diversity, and equity.
There’s much for us to do to keep our state moving forward. I’m confident we will make progress in making New York the best state it can be. I ask for your vote and your support on Election Day, November 8, so I can continue to work for you and your family.
