Ulster’s Comptroller’s Office Expands Capacity

KINGSTON – Ulster County Comptroller March Gallagher announces a promotion appointment in the Comptroller’s Office.

Comptroller Gallagher has appointed Charles Dinstuhl to the position of Deputy Comptroller. Charles Dinstuhl is a Certified Public Accountant who has more than 9 years of accounting experience. Charles served as the Ulster County Director of Internal Audit and Control for the last year. He began his career in public accounting conducting external audits of local municipalities, conducting internal audits of local school districts, and providing tax compliance and consulting services to a wide range of local businesses.

Charles has been a resident of Ulster County since 2003 and is an active community member. He has a passion for internal auditing within the public sector and brings public sector municipal audit experience to the role. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and is a Certified Public Accountant in the State of New York. Charles also volunteers as treasurer for the Rondout Valley chapter of the American Youth Soccer Organization. Charles earned his BS in Accounting and a BA in Political Science both at SUNY New Paltz.

Charles is replacing outgoing Deputy Comptroller Alicia DeMarco who has taken a position in the private sector after serving as Deputy for the last three years.

“Charles Dinstuhl brings both professional certification as a CPA as well as strong county audit experience. Over the last year working with Charles Dinstuhl, I have been impressed with his government accounting knowledge that has served taxpayers very well over a period of time that we have seen significant turnover in the finance operations of the County. When former Deputy Comptroller DeMarco told me that she was leaving, I knew this was an opportunity to promote Charles Dinstuhl. Alicia DeMarco established procedures and systems in the Comptroller’s Office that improved our work, and she has spent the last year training Charles Dinstuhl. We wish Alicia DeMarco the best in her new position and thank her for her tireless work in rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse on behalf of Ulster County taxpayers.”
