During the time Thompson was BOE president, state commission found $2 billion dollars in cost overruns partially resulting from the board's poor capital improvement plans and complete lack of oversight. One board member even expressed her qualms over the ethics of a board which would make plans but never see them through. Thompson's answer, the board only made plans, the money part was not his problem. As comptroller, he failed to stop the citytime scandal, and stood by as millions of tax dollars went to consulting firms like Mckinsey & Co that took city money with little in return. Thompson's answer, a shrug of the shoulders with a "may be I could have done more" but his attitude once again was that the money part was not his problem. Now his platform contains multitude of unfunded projects. I guess the money part is still not his problem. NYC simply cannot afford a Thompson mayoralty where the money part will become all our problem.Aug 29, 2013
