DiNapoli Boots Three from Pension System

From a DiNapoli Press Release...

"State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office revoked the New York State and Local Retirement System membership of three attorneys and rescinded retirement system service credit for two other attorneys and an accountant. The actions are part of DiNapoli’s ongoing review of the Retirement System.

“We’re moving forward, case by case,” DiNapoli said. “We’re conducting a rational, in-depth examination to make sure pensions are only going to those people who have earned them. And we’ll make sure that local taxpayers are made whole.”

DiNapoli revoked retirement system membership for ... Long Island attorneys William Cullen and Nathan Swergold... He rescinded service credit for... Salvatore Evola, an accountant from Long Island."

"Cullen was wrongly reported as an employee by two Long Island public libraries and the Franklin Square Union Free School District, according to DiNapoli’s auditors. The auditors also found that Swergold and Evola were wrongly reported as employees by the Hempstead Sanitary District 1 in Nassau County."
