NYS Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli chats about Brooklyn and state finances
New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli came to Bay Ridge on Thursday, September 26, to speak at a business breakfast hosted by the local Chapter 41 of the American Hellenic Educational Progressives Association (AHEPA)—an international Greek American advocacy group.
“One of the fundamental concepts that AHEPA is built upon is civic responsibility and what better way than to meet elected and appointed officials, ask questions, and have breakfast,” said AHEPA Chapter 41 Vice President George Georgaklis.
On DiNapoli’s agenda for the morning discussion was to provide an overview of the state’s finances and how they pertain to Brooklyn and New York City’s economic outlook for the coming year.
“I always love to come to Brooklyn, which is such a dynamic part of the city and state. This is a great opportunity to update [this community] on where we’re at in the city [because] there’s always so much going on,” said DiNapoli, whose family was from East New York. “As we still struggle to get the economy back on track, speaking with groups like these will help.”
