Today's endorsement: Kadet

Today's editorial endorsement focuses on the Erie County Comptroller race. We recommend Philip Kadet. Current comptroller Mark Poloncarz is a bright, capable negotiator in the financial markets, but he's made the office far too political and the need now is for a numbers person who can use sound financial analysis to frame the debate, not just further the arguments. The political check on the county executive is the Legislature, not the comptroller, who's supposed to keep everyone financially grounded. Kadet has the solid accounting background to do that, we believe. Already retired from his accounting and auditing career, he's not seeking to use this post as a career starter.
