Thomas P. DiNapoli
Thomas P. DiNapoli is the 54th Comptroller of the State of New York. Since taking office in 2007, Comptroller DiNapoli has aggressively fought misuse of public resources, strengthened one of the nation’s top public pension funds, and consistently spoken out against fiscal gimmicks and government inefficiency. A diligent fiduciary of the $160.7 billion state pension fund, Comptroller DiNapoli is changing the way the fund operates to increase transparency and establish strong internal controls, ensuring the strongest investment performance and ethical operations. He instituted the most stringent reporting requirements on investments, fees and other information. He barred investment firms contributing to his campaign from doing business with the state pension fund and was a leading voice in getting the Securities and Exchange Commission to impose tough new rules on “pay to play” to prevent improper influence on investment decisions.
