Thomas DiNapoli (D) talks about being elected as comptroller and his agenda for his first full term in office.
Susan i was asking about NET money going upstate; money leaving downstate to support the failed upstate!as for the water we bought that water a 100 years ago because we planned for the future.
The failed viral campaign for "I'm going to take COMP-trol of Albany"-- that's great stuff. Two thumbs up, Brian &c.
Although the comptroller is not a policy-maker -- isn't it true that the pension system set up -- unsustainable? Isn't it true that for future employees you'll need to implement a tier 6,7, 8 etc....
Government can't do anything unless the pension bomb is defused. What's the comptroller's take on this?
hjs11211 - upstate welfare programs, his11211? there are plenty of programs in both places, besides if upstate started charging you for water, we would be rich up here!
what percent of the state budget comes from downstate to support upstate welfare programs?
