As Comptroller, Tom DiNapoli brings a stellar track record to his bid for re-election. Taking over the role as the state’s fiscal watchdog from a predecessor who went to prison for corruption, DiNapoli, a Democrat, has restored the public’s faith in the office with a lean, non-partisan approach. He has increased the number of audits performed by his office and established the “fiscal stress test” for municipalities. At the same time he earned the state pension system top ratings from financial agencies. Republican Robert Antonacci, who brings a great resume with CPA qualifications, has made the race an issue over campaign finance reform. DiNapoli brings the record. We endorse DiNapoli.
