Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • As your Auditor-Controller I serve as Orange County's Taxpayer Watchdog, putting transparency in government finance first and foremost.
  • Fight fraud and wasteful spending in county government, including continuing to: stop illegal activities by employees, catch pension-funding shenanigans, and battle Sacramento's pilfering of millions from OC taxpayers.
  • Keep OC taxpayers informed, maintaining open communication and helping taxpayers to become their own government watchdogs through education and local partnerships.

Filosofía política

As your Auditor-Controller, I oversee Orange County’s finances. I’m a CPA, who spent most of my career in the private sector, where I successfully owned and managed several businesses through fiscal prudence and responsibility.

Since you first elected me as your Auditor-Controller four years ago:

  • We finally paid off the last of the bonds from the 1994 Orange County bankruptcy.
  • I restored independent oversight of county government by bringing the internal audit function back to my office.
  • We ensured that voters will always know the costs of Orange County ballot measures before voting on them.



As Orange County’s Taxpayer Watchdog, I:

  • Successfully fought Sacramento efforts to take millions of dollars away from Orange County taxpayers.
  • Found a $354,000 fraud committed by a drug rehab center and turned it over to the District Attorney for prosecution.
  • Exposed pension shenanigans and taxpayer-funded political mailers.
  • Discovered potentially illegal activities by County employees and helped put a stop to it.




I grew up in Orange County, graduated from Cal State Fullerton, and married my high school sweetheart. We live in Orange with our two children, who attend local public schools.

I would be honored to have your vote for another term as Orange County Auditor-Controller.
