Please be aware that Harry Wilson is planning to GET RID OF STATE WORKERS PENSION PLANS, and hand them over to his friends on Wall Street.

Worth noting is that, as the economy crashed a few years ago, Wilson reportedly made millions for himself on shady deals, thanks to his corrupt knowledge stemming from being a Wall Street banker.

Please take this into consideration at the polls in November- if you vote for Wilson, you are playing with state workers retirement money that they have worked so very hard for all their lives .

Tom Dinapoli, however, has vowed to PROTECT state workers pension funds. Please support Dinapoli and keep state workers retirement savings out of the reckless hands of the Wall Street elite.

"Please be aware that Harry Wilson is planning to GET RID OF STATE WORKERS PENSION PLANS, and hand them over to his friends on Wall Street".
This is so stupid! Do you believe in UFOs? If he "gets rid" of the plans what will he have to "hand over"? Duh?!?
People are so ignorant it's frightening sometimes. We have a guy from the private sector - not a career parasite - from a small town upstate - who went to Harvard on scholarship! and stupid rumors fly about "Wall Street" getting a hold of our pensions?
Who the heck do you think manages our pensions now? Not DiNapoli - the man doesn't knows a yield from a yo yo. Wall Street manages our pensions now and DiNapoli pays them 350 million a year to do it!
Why do you think they "paid" $ to "play" $$$$?
Lets get someone in there that knows their tricks. An honest guy from the financial sector.

Yeah and Santy Claus is my Uncle. Seriously? You got that right off of damn smear ad! And I hope they do privatize the damn pensions. While the rest of hardworking New Yorkers are getting it up the rear to pay for those pensions. I have seen first hand how incredibly lazy state workers are....to even call some of them workers at all is laughable. I'm sure there is a good amount of good decent worker for the state...but damn I sure the hell haven't seen them in the last 15 years! I hope the hell they take a whack at all the useless, waste of space state workers and only keep the ones that actually do their jobs!

Duh?!?---by get rid of I think state worker meant give away to the private sector the state workers pension plan so they can get the same stellar results everyone else gets on investments. Privatizing the plan would also likely result in the gutting of the way its structured meaning that instead of a defined benefit setup the workers can in fact get nothing if those who invest on their behalf mess up, something that can't happen as it stands now. Advocating for the transfer of the pensions from how they stand now is advocating removing pension security from public employees.
People are so ignorant it's frightening sometimes. We have a guy from the private sector - not a career parasite - from a small town upstate - who went to Harvard on scholarship! and stupid rumors fly about "Wall Street" getting a hold of our pensions?--- someone who works in finance, a sector that exists to create money from existing money and not actually doing anything of benefit to the society that holds up the finacial system is in fact a career parasite. When he "fixes broken companies" that means things like laying off workers, dumping pensions (a la the airlines)and cutting benefits and pay to those that remain so the people he represents (the ceos) still get their golden parachute while the rest free fall.
Who the heck do you think manages our pensions now? Not DiNapoli - the man doesn't knows a yield from a yo yo. Wall Street manages our pensions now and DiNapoli pays them 350 million a year to do it!--- The comptroller has the ability to steer the pension into investments that are sound and do it for the best interest of the public employees. It can and has been used to punish companies that do wrong as well since pulling out of a company with something as large as the NY pension fund has serious effects on the said company's stock prices. If the pension is split up it becomes just many disconnected individuals with retirement investments, you know, the kind of people who were sold US housing bonds thru their mutual fund which then tanked. By keeping it as one large group it allows more protection for workers from risky investing by those on wall street that handle it because they stand to face the blowback of losing such a big client as opposed to many small and individual clients
Lets get someone in there that knows their tricks. An honest guy from the financial sector.--- Bwahahahahaha! An honest guy from the financial sector? Did you live under a rock the last few years?
At any rate, if you are a public employee or related to one or just care that they don't get screwed pull the lever for the guy that doesn't want to sell off people retirement security to make his buddies even richer. Unless you're worried they might have to settle for just 2 summer homes this year

I agree, lets get all those lazy bastards out of there! Let everyone in NY repave their own roads, fix their own bridges, keep their elderly and crazy and retarded relatives at home instead of dumping them into state systems, form a local posse instead of state troopers, do their own monitering of the local environment and keep poachers out of the woods... and all the other things that public employees do. I vote we head back to 1900 and get past silly regulations on child labor or workplace safety and leave those unfortunate enough to be poor or old or sick to fend for themselves. I didn't make them old, I didn't make them sick, I didn't make them retarded, why the hell should I have to pay anything to provide for them? If they want people to take care of them then they better have some money to pay for the care. Damn freeloaders are as bad as the state workers that get paid to help them and sponge of us hard working folk!

The "vote out all incumbants" theory might just be the dumbest idea that I've ever heard.

let me get this straight; you want to blindly remove all incumbants from office, for no other reason than the fact that they currently hold the job? Have you ever considered the possibility that the guy you're putting into the job is an idiot? Do yo even have a reason for replacing the incumbant? Are you that dumb?

What if your boss walked into your office tommorrow and fired you becuase the guy six cubicles over wasn't doing his job?
