ALBANY - The New York state Legislature elected Assemblyman Thomas DiNapoli (D-Great Neck) Wednesday to be state?s next comptroller. The move goes against Governor Spitzer (D-NY) who demanded that the pick be someone approved by a screening panel of former comptrollers. The panel approved three candidates, which included Nassau County Comptroller Howard Weitzman, New York City financial officer Martha Stark and Bill Mulrow, a Wall Street financier. DiNapoli replaces Alan Hevesi, a former assembly member, who resigned in December after pleading guilty to a felony for using state workers to run errands for his wife.
