January 7, 2013. Frank Mauro will be stepping down as FPI’s Executive Director at the end of New York’s 2013 Legislative session. Mauro has long been one of Albany’s best known experts on budget and public policy issues from his work at FPI and earlier as Secretary of the NYS Assembly Ways and Means Committee, director of Assembly Speaker Stanley Fink’s Program Development Group, director of research for the last major revision of the New York City Charter, and Deputy Director of the Rockefeller Institute of Government.
Michael Burgess, FPI board chair, said “Frank Mauro has used his great understanding of fiscal issues and his passion for tax fairness to make the Fiscal Policy Institute the source for progressive policy proposals through five governors and an entire generation of Albany legislative history. In that time, FPI’s work has provided policy research and analysis to support the value and impact of government economic and social investments.”
Mauro’s leadership at FPI since 1993 has been essential to its development as a credible and effective advocacy organization that helps to shape the debate over key economic and fiscal issues in ways that ensure a voice for working people – from middle income homeowners struggling with high property tax bills to those families whose breadwinners toil in minimum wage jobs to the involuntarily unemployed.
