A Great Way to Make a Living

I haven’t heard this before, but Alan Hevesi said this morning that he passed up a really lucrative job offer in the private sector to run for comptroller”

“I was offered the presidency of a real estate company that had a starting salary of $500,000; [and] five percent of the company. I would be a multi-millionaire now. That’s not my thing. That’s not what I’m looking to do. I wanted to stay in public service. It’s a great way to make a living. And so, I became the state comptroller.”
