William C. Thompson, Jr., New York City Comptroller and a frequent visitor to “City Talk,” joins Doug this week to discuss the condition of the city and the state. The son of a judge and a teacher, Comptroller Thompson is the proud product of the New York City public school system. He has earned a reputation as a tough advocate for New Yorkers, and has stood on the side of working people seeking a living wage and fairness on the job. The discussion touches on topics such as public education, Walmart's presence in New York City, and how Eliot Spitzer is doing in his first few months as governor.
