    After losing a closer-than-anticipated race for mayor in 2009 to Michael Bloomberg, Bill Thompson is back at it again in 2013. Best known as the city's Comptroller from 2002 to 2009, Bill has also served on the Board of Education and as the chairman of the Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority. He is currently the chief administrative officer and senior managing director at Siebert, Brandford, Shank & Company LLC, a public financing firm.
