Background: Thirteen years ago I started my own document tracking business, which I still run today. Since 2007 I have been a state representative from the 28th Legislative District. While a member of the State House, I have chaired the Joint Legislative Audit & Review Committee from 2009 – 2011. I am a lieutenant colonel in the Washington National Guard and have been active for 18 years as a JAG officer. Previously, I led audit teams around the country for the Securities and Exchange Commission, worked in the federal prosecutor's office at the Department of Justice, and was President of First American Exchange Company.
Please describe your top 5 priorities if elected State Auditor:
1: Promote efficiency and accountability by fighting fraud and reviewing management structures. 2: Improve the state's whistleblower program and promote greater whistleblower protections at local levels. 3: Champion transparency in government. 4: Creating a clearinghouse for best practices, streamlining compliance processes. 5: Use performance audits to improve government, specifically looking at the new Consolidated Technology Services Department, and looking at the largest agencies with the greatest potential for cost savings like DSHS and the fraud taking place in the food stamp (EBT card) program, among others.
