On Thursday of last week Alabama’s state comptroller, Thomas L. White, Jr., died from an unspecified illness. Gov. Robert Bentley offered his condolences to White’s family and lauded his time as a public servant for the state.
“I really appreciate Tom’s dedication to Alabama, he will be truly missed,” Bentley said.
Prior to his time spent as the state’s comptroller, White worked as the CFO at the Alabama Department of Public Health for 22 years. He spent an additional 15 years holding the CFO position for the Alabama Public Healthcare Authority.
As the comptroller, White’s responsibilities were to keep track of Alabama’s budget and the inflow and outflow of tax dollars.
