Political party: 
Question 1: 

What is your vision for the role of the Kentucky Auditor? How will our commonwealth be better in four years if you are elected?

I intend to use the Auditor of Public Accounts position to conduct audits which compare various functions of the government to best practices in other states, nations, and to private industries which provide similar services.

Question 2: 

Please highlight previous experience that qualifies you for serving in this office.

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in accounting.

I am a member of the IIA (Institute of Internal Auditors) and hold the CIA designation.

I have over 7 years of professional experience conducting various types of audits, including experience with a big 4 public accounting firm.

Question 3: 

What steps have you taken or would you take to fight political corruption in Kentucky?

I constantly speak to and advocate for limitations on the power of the legislature and various other government functions. I advocate complete decriminalization of all non-violent crimes. I advocate for more freedom for students, including the right to competitive options, and non-compulsory attendance at schools.

Question 4: 

What steps have you taken or would you take to ensure open, fair and transparent operations of state and local government, schools, and other public institutions?

My primary issues and audits planned:

1. criminal justice system: I advocate complete decriminalization of all non-violent crimes.

2. schools: I advocate for schooling to no longer be compulsory. I advocate for competitive options for education systems to exist.

A few other more general practices of which I am critical and would seek to end:
Critical of tax credits for some businesses, but not others
Critical of government contracts with no accountability or oversight
Critical of various eminent domain practices
Critical of current civil asset forfeiture practices
