Those regular readers know my unabashed endorsement of Harry Wilson's campaign for State Comptroller. Let's face it, it's one of the less glamorous races out there - no one (other than me and other politicos) are talking about this race.
Well you should be - we all should be. Because we need to restore fiscal sanity to our State - and we need a financial professional to do it.
Hopefully, the recent flurry of endorsements for Mr. Wilson will help bring some greater visibility to the importance of picking our next state chief fiscal watchdog.
In case you've missed it, just about every major newspaper locally in the City has backed Harry Wilson. Check them out here:
New York Times Endorsement
NY Daily News Endorsement
NY Post Endorsement
Crain's New York Business Endorsement
Get out the word about Harry Wilson - and tell ten friends to vote for him on Election Day!

Pataki spoke glowingly of Malliotakis, who served on his gubernatorial staff in Albany, and the confidence he has in her to be a great representative for Brooklyn and Staten Island.
This is just the latest in many endorsements for the Malliotakis campaign, as Gov. Pataki was joined at the podium by Senator Marty Golden, former Assemblyman Matthew Mirones, Brooklyn GOP Chair Craig Eaton, Brooklyn Conservative Party Chair Jerry Kassar and NYS Conservative Chair Mike Long.
Just received this from the Grimm Campaign:
The nation’s 41st President, George H.W. Bush served as Grimm’s Commander-in-Chief while Grimm served as a U.S. Marine in Operation Desert Storm. The former President seldom enters the political fray, especially to endorse a candidate. President Bush delivered this rare endorsement to Grimm personally at his Kennebunkport, Maine home.
“As the Commander-in-Chief at the time when Michael served our country in combat, liberating Kuwait in the first Gulf War, I am very pleased to endorse Michael Grimm for Congress in New York’s 13th Congressional District,” President Bush said. “Michael’s dedication to service as a U.S. Marine and as an FBI special agent exemplifies the type of commitment and integrity we need in Washington. Michael Grimm has the experience and proven leadership needed to get our economy back on track to create jobs and keep our nation safe.”
The ties between Grimm and President Bush run deep. In addition to being Grimm’s Commander-in-Chief, President Bush served as Director of the CIA, while Grimm was an undercover FBI agent. President Bush was a Congressman himself before serving as the Ambassador to the United Nations, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Chief of the U.S. Liaison Office in the People's Republic of China, and then Vice President of the United States during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
“To be endorsed by my Commander-in-Chief is a unique honor,” said Grimm (R-Staten Island). “President Bush served our country nobly during World War II as a naval aviator, and of course, as our Commander-in-Chief during the Persian Gulf War. During times of war, such as the times we live in today, Congress needs men and women who have served our country, because we know firsthand the sacrifice and tremendous cost of liberty and freedom. My Commander-in-Chief’s personal endorsement is an honor and a memory I will treasure for my entire life.”

Wait, you meant you never heard of this movie? That's because it's not being shown in the greater New York City area. Watch the trailer, and start thinking road trip to the nearest theater playing it!

Wednesday night, after the Grimm-McMahon debate, stop by the "Victory Center" for a special LIVE Brooklyn GOP Radio. If you're attending the debate, tell us ON AIR what you thought of it.
We're working on having Michael Grimm come on the show to talk about his reactions (fingers crossed!).
This promises to be a VERY interesting night!

The Brooklyn GOP has endorsed candidate Michael Grimm, the victor of the hotly-contested primary battle in the NY-13 Congressional race.
On primary night, Grimm won 1,594 votes or 56 percent in the Brooklyn part of the district, to Allegretti’s 1,259 votes, or 44 percent.
Sen. Marty Golden, on hand at Grimm's Brooklyn Campaign Office grand opening at 73rd Street and 13th Ave., said the following of Grimm in a statement released by the candidate’s campaign:
“Washington politicians are taxing us to death. New York has the second-highest taxes in the country. Our economy won’t grow until we end the cycle of taxing and spending.”
“That’s why we need Michael Grimm now more than ever to fight for our families by growing our economy and creating jobs. That is why I am proud to endorse him for Congress.”
