Letter: Restore office of auditor
To the editor:
As we read the alarming reports news of public funds possibly being siphoned to overseas terrorist groups through government-sponsored daycare centers in Minnesota, we all recognized that something needs to be done.
One step I will be taking to end such shameful abuse of my tax dollars is to vote for Pam Myhra for state auditor.
The state auditor’s office has oversight of government spending and accountability. But without a qualified and knowledgeable auditor leading the charge, the office cannot be effective. Fortunately, we have a highly qualified candidate of great integrity in Pam Myhra.
Myhra is a licensed CPA and has had an impressive career in private sector auditing and accounting. In fact, Myhra is the only Certified Public Accountant seeking this office in the upcoming election. In addition, Myhra is the only candidate for state auditor with actual auditing experience. During her tenure in the state Legislature, Myhra proved to be a strong leader and was chief author of legislation that improved transparency pertaining to government spending. I know that Myhra will represent the public’s best interests.
This choice is an easy one! Let’s restore accountability and transparency to the office of state auditor.
