To all of my supporters and friends:
I want to send each of you my heartfelt thanks for the terrific support you have provided me during the past year as I ran for re-election for State Auditor. This was certainly an unusual year including the election of a complete Republican government in the General Assembly and for Governor. The truly amazing thing was the strength of the Council of State officials being re-elected down ballot from the Governor’s race which was overwhelming won by McCrory.
I and other Council of State members could not have won without your dedication and hard work for our campaigns that tend to get less press and excitement. We have to depend on the front line troops to remind everyone of the importance of our departments and that leadership of those departments is important. In my case it was important that voters understand that qualifications matter as well.
I promise to uphold the high standards we have set in the Auditor’s office and to personally carry out my duties knowing the trust the public has placed with me. Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
