Democracy dies in the dark.


Transparency and investigation are at times the ONLY tools citizens have to keep elected officials in check, whether that means reigning in unintended expense creep to keep your taxes from rising, or uncovering corruption and abuse to hold officials accountable. 


The Office Of Lehigh County Controller is tasked with auditing and investigating the government, acting as a watchdog with independent ability to look into any item that involves even just $1 of tax dollar expense. 


For years the incumbent Republican Controller has done the minimum. We know there are plenty of examples and waste and outright criminal corruption in Lehigh County. I will restore the full power of the Controller, and hold all officials accountable. 


I will be your advocate, and will be easily reachable and responsive. I will ensure government spending is fully transparent with regular reports. 


But frankly I need money to get elected. Defeating an 8 year Republican incumbent who has managed to stay under the radar will not be easy, it as you know nothing is free. But if we don’t have a Controller who does their full job, you will not have transparent and accountable governmen
