Candidates For NY State Comptroller Trade Jabs

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Coming down to the wire, the candidates for New York Comptroller are neck in neck — each predicting victory.

Democratic incumbent Tom DiNapoli has attacked challenger Harry Wilson for being a hedge fund operator, 1010 WINS’ Senior Correspondent Stan Brooks reported.

“I do think that the voters understand there’s a difference between the middle class values that I represent…versus the worst of the Wall Street values that Mr. Wilson represents,” DiNapoli said.

Wilson fired back at DiNapoli’s comments.

“I find it very hypocritical,” Wilson said. “He’s a gentleman who spent 20 years voting for every tax increase put before him and four years mismanaging the pension fund. I think he’s brought this state to its knees and I think we desperately need some new blood.”

Wilson said the main issues in the race were financial competence and independence.

“We need the CFO of the state to be someone with deep financial experience and the independence and expertise to really guide us,” Wilson said.

The polls indicate the race is too close to call.
