Statement of PEF President Kenneth Brynien on Comptroller DiNapoli’s commitment to the state’s pension fund
Albany - The New York State Public Employees Federation (PEF) applauds and supports state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s stand on protecting the state’s pension fund.
Comptroller DiNapoli has proven himself a tenacious defender of the fund and we have full faith and confidence in his ability to continue to protect the fund.
New York State’s pension fund is one of the few pension funds in the country that has remained fully funded during the economic downturn. The comptroller’s commitment to protect the fund from political tampering is one of the reasons the fund hasn’t slipped, the way many other public pension funds have.
