Michelle is running for Comptroller because she believes that at a time when New York City’s economy is in crisis, many New Yorkers are out of work, and small businesses are struggling to survive, we need a Comptroller with the background, financial experience, and steady leadership needed to get people back to work, make sure the city’s dollars are spent and invested wisely, and navigate New York City through these unprecedented times.
