Scott M. Stringer

New York City Comptroller

New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer has spent his public service career fighting for New York’s middle class, strengthening the City’s fiscal health and championing good government. The New York Times described Mr. Stringer as a public servant “committed to the principles of good government” and “a strong voice for civil rights and marriage equality, a defender of immigrants and the poor.”

Mr. Stringer was elected to the New York State Assembly in 1992, representing Manhattan’s West Side for 13 years, and won election in 2005 as Manhattan Borough President. He was elected Comptroller on November 5, 2013.

As investment advisor, custodian and trustee of the City’s five pension funds, Mr. Stringer implemented a six-point ethics reform package for the administration of the City’s $160 billion public pension system. This groundbreaking effort includes a ban on placement agents, who have repeatedly been embroiled in pay-to-play scandals in previous administrations. He appointed the City’s first-ever Chief Diversity Officer, to increase participation of Minority and Women-Owned Businesses seeking to do business with the City and diversify corporate management, workforces and boards.

Mr. Stringer has launched key initiatives to protect and grow New Yorkers’ pension dollars, and to increase the overall value of the City’s pension funds. He has enhanced integrity and professionalism in fund management and worked to achieve strong, consistent returns by calling for more comprehensive assessment and diversification of pension investments.
