For the past many years, since September 1969, I have had the privilege of serving as your Columbus City Auditor and have gained a broad knowledge of the financial workings of the City. The City Auditor’s role is described as the city’s “chief accountant.” I also served as Columbus City Treasurer from January 1966 until becoming City Auditor. My other credentials include a B. Sc. In Bus. Admin. With a major in Accounting from The Ohio State University, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of Ohio and have received the “Award of Financial reporting Achievement” from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for 33 consecutive years.
Major issues have been, and continue to be, safeguarding the City’s assets and maintaining a stable financial condition of the City. These goals cannot be achieved by any one person. This city Auditor will continue to work toward these goals in a competent and independent manner along with his competent and independent colleagues. This effort calls for meeting continuing professional education requirements and professional accounting and reporting standards.
Columbus voters, for many years, have given me the privilege of serving as your City Auditor. I simply ask that you grant me that privilege once again by voting for me on November 5, 2013.

I have enough expertise to stop corruption in Columbus City Hall.
My main goal is to investigate the corruption activity of Mayor and members of Council and take appropriate actions thereafter. I want to raise three times the average income in Columbus. It is the only way to solve most city problems.
Please do not vote for incumbents. Their result is evident: Columbus is the poorest city in Central Ohio; some areas look like warzone; thousands of ruined lives and destinies.
