Scott Stringer
As comptroller, Scott Stringer is the chief fiscal and auditing officer of New York City. His main power derives from investing the city’s pension funds, but the office also affords Stringer a bully pulpit for critiquing city contracts as well as other investments, including those related to real estate. Stringer was first elected comptroller in November 2013, after defeating former Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the Democratic primary. Before that, he served two terms as Manhattan borough president, where he was particularly vocal on land-use issues and worked to increase the influence of community boards. For much of the 1990s and early 2000s, Stringer served in the state Assembly, representing a portion of Manhattan’s West Side. Stringer was born in April 1960, and grew up in Washington Heights before attending John Jay College.
