Dear Editor:

Republican/Conservative Party candidate Harry Wilson for State Comptroller makes sense. 

State government has always had members of different political parties holding key statewide offices.  This promotes independent checks and balances to insure honesty.  Past Republican governors Nelson Rockefeller and George Pataki had Democrats Arthur Levitt, Carl McCall and Alan Hevisi as State Comptroller. Democratic Governors Hugh Carey and Mario Cuomo had Republican Comptroller Ned Regan. 

Despite the valiant efforts of Carl Paladino- who is swimming upstream against a hostile media, Albany pay-to-play special interests and overwhelming Democratic enrollment numbers- odds favor his oppenent, Democrat Andrew Cuomo.  

For taxpayers regardless of ideology or party affiliation, Republican Harry Wilson is the logical choice for state comptroller.  He can hold Cuomo accountable to honest finances along with avoiding waste, fraud and abuse. 

Wilson will also have his hands full keeping an eye on Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and the state senate majority leader.  One party control of Albany by the infamous "Three Men In The Room" just as we have seen in Washington for both the Executive and Legislative branches of government is a recipe for disaster.
