According to the Voter Guide there are five candidates running for comptroller in the Democratic primary. One is a CPA, Salim Ejaz, but I have not heard him on the NY1 debate or on WNYC. Why?

I am sure the public would be interested in understanding the relationship between Mr. Weprin and private companies including companies on behalf of which Mr. Weprin has written letters (using his elected position) to solicit business

Did Ms. Katz just say she gets political donations from corporations she costs money with her positions; they give her money for being an adversary…. Well now I know who definitely will not be getting my vote Tuesday.
This along with here “all boys” malarkey is just nails in the coffin.

Based on Katz ad on about contractors and "rip offs" alone I would not vote for her. She claims that she would post online city contract info and cost overruns...that cost overruns would tell what contractors are ripping off the city. Life is more complicated than that. Cost overruns can occur from unexpected events, changes in city requirements, poorly written contracts and a variety of legitimate reasons. Rip-offs are just one reason, and an overrun is not the clear evidence by any means. These suggestions of broad brush slurs is just what we need less of not more. Is Ms. Katz really that naiive or does she think the voters are just that simple minded. I am not a contractor.
