When the State Auditor resigned...

As a former auditor, I understand the importance of independence.

Whether it's an audit or an investigation, the people conducting it must be independent in fact and appearance. Any hint of bias could compromise the entire investigation—and we deserve the truth.

Here in Texas, the State Auditor resigned abruptly in 2015. Lt. Governor Dan Patrick has refused to hire a new auditor, compromising a key safeguard meant to protect our money.

This is unacceptable, and unforgivable.

We need a Lt. Governor who understands that Texas must have a truly independent State Auditor. Someone who will work every day to provide transparency and accountability to the people.

Chip in now to help me defeat Dan Patrick and fix our state’s broken politics.
