  • 08/16/2018 : COMPTROLLER MYCHAJLIW RESPONDS TO GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO COMMENTS THAT AMERICA ‘WAS NEVER THAT GREAT’

    “My family is the definition of living the beauty of the American dream.  When my immigrant grandparents and father fled their Ukrainian farm with nothing to find a better life here, they did so because they wanted to live freely in the greatest country on Earth.  After coming to America legally, our family didn’t have two nickels to rub together.  But my Polish mother and Ukrainian father always told us that in America, if you work hard and earn an education, you can achieve greatness.

After reviewing the data from Oct. 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018, the Comptroller is alerting towns and villages that revenue for most municipalities declined.
