New York State Reform Party

May 2, 2018

(New York, NY) The executive committee of the New York State Reform Party announced today their endorsement of state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli for re-election.

The Reform Party, which focuses on reducing the interest of special interests, bringing a non-partisan approach to government and restoring fiscal sanity to Albany praised DiNapoli’s independent, apolitical stewardship of the pension fund and his record as a champion for New York taxpayers.

Reform Party Chairman Curtis Sliwa cited the DiNapoli endorsement as an example of the party choosing the best candidates irrespective of party. “We’re going to choose the best candidates on the merits. That will include Republicans, Democrats and independents.”

In accepting the party’s endorsement, Comptroller DiNpoli added“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Reform Party’s Executive Committee. The Reform Party seeks to change New York for the better. We share the goal of bringing accountability and transparency to state government”.

Citing DiNapoli’s history of refusing to bend to the political winds, state Reform Party spokesman, Frank Morano said “Tom DiNapoli is a model public servant and embodies the non-partisan approach to government that all elected officials should seek to emulate. The Comptroller’s office shouldn’t be a platform for political grandstanding”.

The full state committee of the Reform Party will be having their convention in Nassau County on May 20th to formally nominate candidates for Comptroller, Attorney General, Governor and Lt. Governor.

Tom DiNapoli became state Comptroller in 2007 and was re-elected in 2010 and 2014. The state Reform Party achieved ballot status in 2014.
