State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli will offer a talk at Temple Emanuel of Great Neck, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. The title of the talk is: “The State of Our State.”
Thomas DiNapoli is the 54th Comptroller of the State of New York. A life-long Long Islander, DiNapoli was raised in a middle-class, union household and saw the value of hard work and stretching every dollar in the example set by his parents.
In 1972, DiNapoli won his first election and served as a trustee on the Mineola Board of Education, becoming the first 18-year-old in New York State to hold public office. He attended Hofstra University, earning a bachelor’s degree in history and graduated magna cum laude in 1976.
He worked in the telecommunications industry for 10 years, and went to night classes and earned a master’s degree from The New School University’s Graduate School of Management and Urban Professions. In 1986, he ran for the New York State Assembly and was elected to represent the 16th District in northwestern Nassau County for the next 20 years.
DiNapoli was elected State Comptroller on Feb. 7, 2007 by a bipartisan majority of the State Legislature. He was then elected Comptroller by New York’s voters in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.
Comptroller DiNapoli’s talk is preceded by a brief service. A Q&A and refreshments will follow the talk. All members of the community are invited to attend.
