Harry Wilson for NY Comptroller

November 2, 2010

Harry Wilson, a candidate for New York State’s Comptroller, called in to confirm a report Howard had been given by his father: “Your father was right. I was actually the first state-wide challenger in 34 years to be endorsed by all 3 New York City papers.”

Harry promised to exercise the full power of his position: “I’m going to go through literally every single dollar of spending the state does. We did that at GM, which is about the same size as New York, by the way–we came up with about $10 billion in cost savings.”

Howard went over Harry’s resume–a Harvard MBA, former Treasury advisor to President Obama, a 1500+ SAT score–and offered his endorsement: “I’m kind of excited now about what you might be up to.”

Harry hoped the rest of New York felt the same way, as a vote for the incumbent would lead to more overspending: “I’ll be really disappointed for the state…this is a unique opportunity to really make a difference.”
