Spin Cycle

News, views and commentary on Long Island, state and national politics.

Suffolk Republican Chairman John Jay LaValle announced his support for Harry Wilson for comptroller, who already has the backing of the state GOP and state Conservative chairmen against incumbent Democrat Thomas DiNapoli.

"New York State is in a fiscal crisis and Harry Wilson is the right person to help get our State's finances back on track," Mr. LaValle said. "The unelected incumbent Comptroller has been part of the problem in Albany for almost 25 years, and he is woefully under-qualified for the office. Harry Wilson is a nationally renowned restructuring professional and the taxpayers deserve a proven business executive rather than another politician. I am confident the residents of our State will quickly embrace Harry when they fully learn of his credentials."
