What does the County Auditor 's Office do?
The Auditor's Office conducts “…performance audits and special studies that provide accountability to the public and improve Multnomah County programs, services, and operations… The elected County Auditor answers directly to the citizens of Multnomah County and determines the programs and services to be audited.” (From Multnomah County 's website)
Dear Multnomah County Voter,
I started work as an auditor in 1991 and I've done auditing, fiscal and budgeting duties responsibly in difficult financial times in both the public and private sectors. In this economy county government needs to be able to do more with less. As your Auditor, I will protect your tax dollars, critical services and work to ensure county government provides equity to its citizens and maintains the highest standards of upholding the public trust. Thank you for your past support and I'd appreciate your vote to continue the good work of the Auditor's Office.
