New York State and Local Government


New York State permits so-called "cross-endorsements", in which a candidate is allowed to appear on more than one Party's ballot line: thus, a candidate who loses the nomination of one of the two Major Parties for a given office but has already been nominated for that same office by at least one Party which is not one of the two Major Parties will still appear somewhere on the General Election ballot despite losing said Primary; in other words, a candidate losing in the Primary does not necessarily preclude that candidate from running for the same office in November.

Comptroller  4 year term, Election Cycle: 2006, 2010

  Democratic Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli
Chosen by the State Legislature to succeed Alan Hevesi (who had resigned in December 2006): 7 February 2007
Seat up for election: Tuesday 2 November 2010
  
On 7 February 2007, Mr. DiNapoli was chosen by the State Legislature to succeed Alan Hevesi (who had resigned in December 2006)
 
On 9 January 2007, Governor Eliot Spitzer and State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who have been at least somewhat at odds over just what kind of person should be the new State Comptroller (it is reported that Speaker Silver would prefer a political insider, while the Governor would prefer an outsider with experience in the private financial sector), announced a plan by which this office will eventually be filled.

The procedure to be followed is as follows:

  • A 3-person search committee, consisting of former State Comptrollers, will come up with up to 5 nominees for the Legislature to consider for the post.
  • Each nominee so chosen by the committee will have to face a public hearing before a Joint Committee of the Legislature.
  • After these hearings have questioned all nominees, a Joint Session of the State Legislature will select the next State Comptroller, who will fill out the remainder of the term of office ending at the beginning of January 2011.
 
In the Fall of 2006 an Ethics Commission concluded that Comptroller Alan G. Hevesi violated state law by using up to four state workers to chauffeur his wife. 
Democratic Comptroller Alan G. Hevesi, who was first elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2006, resigned on 22 December 2006.

Political Parties    Parties appear in parenthesis and italics when a candidate receives the endorsement of a given Party and/or official sources indicate a candidate's association with a particular Party but only where the Party in question does not appear on the actual ballot as such.

Major Parties
  Democratic (affiliates): 29 incumbents
  Republican: 6 incumbents
 
Candidates running under the banner of more than one party are counted towards each party's total. A candidate who has lost a primary or is apparently no longer a candidate is not counted.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from an election authority that the person so listed will actually appear on the ballot.
