Statement: Our state needs a passionate, skilled State Auditor who will hold all government agencies accountable to Washingtonians. As the only candidate who’s audited, reviewed, and improved businesses, hospitals, government agencies, nonprofits, and colleges, I’m able to lead the embattled State Auditor’s Office and get results on day one.
We’ve seen the terrible headlines of mismanaged and failing government agencies--ineffective homelessness programs that increase homelessness and crime, prisoners escaping mental hospitals, state employees injured, prison inmates released early, and a Transportation Department creating gridlock on our roads. We can and must do better!
I’ve spent my life in both the public and private sector championing efficient, effective and ethical government; justice for the most vulnerable; and increasing public trust. Every dollar government wastes means fewer resources in the classroom or for those in need, and more pressure to raise taxes. As State Auditor, I will use performance audits to ensure all our governments become good stewards of your tax dollars, achieve real results, and earn your trust!
We deserve the most efficient, effective, and ethical government. We can’t afford to elect someone to this critical office who has zero experience. Elect an accomplished auditor—elect Mark Miloscia for State Auditor!
