My Goals

Greater Transparency

Taxpayers have a right to audit the Auditor. I will post the office budget online, including a list of all outside contractors along with the contracts.

I will provide summaries of all audits and reviews in plain language.

More Accountability

It is not enough to conduct audits and reviews. We must track audit recommendations over time to ensure that state government makes the changes necessary to improve compliance and internal controls.

It is essential to estimate the costs of all discretionary audits and reviews in order to determine if the benefits outweigh the costs.

Better Use of Resources

Increase output by conducting audits and reviews in shorter time frames by avoiding scope creep.

Review all service contracts to determine if the use of outside contractors is the best way to get the work done.

As an experienced analyst, I plan to be a hands-on auditor and participate in the day-to-day work of the office.
