|Last night I was on KET for the only statewide televised appearance with all the candidates for Kentucky Auditor. The contrast couldn’t have been more apparent.|
The current Auditor is a career politician of the worst kind. Four years ago, he promised to look after taxpayer money and audit the pension systems. It’s a job he has not only failed miserably at but one he admits that he turned over to Matt Bevin.
He likes to say he “follows the data,” but he refuses to follow the data when it leads to his political allies. He sits idly by instead of doing his job and looking into Braidy Industries, Bevin’s cover-up of his use of the state airplane, and Martin County Water! His stunning lack of leadership as Auditor is one of the reasons that people are losing faith in government.
In my 20 years working for the U.S. Navy time and time again, I stood up to defense contractors with billions of dollars on the line to protect our fighting men and women and save taxpayers money.
- As your next State Auditor, I will fearlessly search out waste fraud and abuse wherever it is and whoever is responsible for it!
- I will modernize and professionalize the state’s cybersecurity audits to protect your personal information.
- I will audit the state’s electronic voting machines to ensure that your votes and voices will be heard and counted.
