The Municipal Forum of New York Tuesday night hosted its 19th annual awards dinner to honor three members of the municipal bond industry: New York City Comptroller William Thompson, long-time municipal banker Samuel Ramirez, and Wisconsin capital finance director Frank Hoadley, who was awarded the forum's lifetime achievement award.
