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. 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 has served as Comptroller since 2014. As Manhattan Borough President, he published reports on food policy including “Red Tape, Green Vegetables,” and “Food NYC: A Blueprint for a Sustainable Food System.” A longtime advocate of community-driven planning and environmental justice, Comptroller Stringer authored an amicus brief to the New York Court of Appeals in a case in which the Court ruled that local communities had a right to ban fracking under their zoning code.
