Deputy Comptroller Robert Ward's Statement Responding to Budget Director Megna's Reaction to Comptroller's Budget Analysis

The Comptroller’s independent analysis of the 2013-14 Executive Budget is straightforward and clear. The reaction of Budget Director Robert Megna to our impartial review is puzzling. His comments regarding our staff were off-base and miss the point.

A careful reading of the risks and concerns identified in our report should inform a thoughtful discussion as the budget process proceeds.

The facts speak for themselves.
