This edition: William Thompson, NYC Comptroller

Episode Details

Original tape date: May 23, 2006.

New York City Comptroller Billy Thompson's aggressive work in office makes him “upwardly mobile” according to a rave review by The New York Times. He has outwardly opposed the mayor on several issues, questioning weather he can recognize the necessary transparency of the public sector so not to mistake it for private sector expediency. The comptroller's office has given Thompson an array of challenges to tackle. Muzzio and Thompson discuss his wide purview, from the budget surplus to gouging gas prices.
