Qualifications for Office I bring the necessary tools to the position. I was a corporate Program Manager for multi-million dollar projects. I am versed in financial management and risk analysis for both civilian and military applications. I also gave back to my community as a High School Teacher.
Though an annual professional certified audit is done by the township, the Township Auditors still must do due diligence on how our tax money is accounted for and controlled. Online access by the Township Auditors to all activities and accounts allowed under the law is necessary. Since Auditors set current year compensation for supervisors employed by the township - an online review of adjacent township compensation will be compared and evaluated against supervisor performance prior to setting the rates. Likewise all district justice fines and costs paid over or due the township will be inspected online, as applicable; and such will be accomplished when a vacancy occurs of a public official who handles public funds. It is not the township's money, but the taxpayers, and fiduciary accountability is very important.
