March will shine a light and follow the money, by:

Smart Auditing

By taking a professional, objective and helpful approach to targeting waste, potential fraud and uncovering cost savings, March will use the office as an internal best practices consulting arm of the county. We have lots of great programs that could be even more effective with the right guidance and feedback.

Sharing Data

March will make county data easily accessible to the public, starting with vendor payments as open source data. This will increase the amount of trust and sense of accountability that residents have with local government, and foster more productive conversations between both parties as collaborators, not adversaries.

Explaining County Issues

The Comptroller’s office reports serve to examine and communicate financial issues related to the efficiency and effectiveness of county operations, and relate them back to the public. These reports are important; not only should they be easily accessible, but they should be engaging, easy to understand, and have clear actions or next steps that elected leaders and citizens can take to further engage with the subjects at hand.
