Earlier today, Radio Iowa published an article outlining why both Auditor candidates say they deserve your vote. Non-elected, incumbent Mary Mosiman still has no consistent reason why a CPA certification is necessary for the State Auditor. She has gone from saying the certification is required by law (false) to saying it would change how municipalities did audits (false) and now the excuse is that it would negatively effect employee retention (highly unlikely, probably false). There is no evidence any of these claims are true yet, she still continues to harp on this CPA issue.
So far there has been NO CLEAR or CONSISTENT reason the CPA certification is necessary or required. When combined with her concession that her audits are not designed to protect tax-payer dollars from fraud and waste the clear choice becomes Jon Neiderbach. This isn’t a question of which is the best of two bad choices. This is a question of which candidate will actually be our watchdog and do the job they are elected to do and which candidate will constrain Iowa by not holding Governor Branstad accountable. So far Mosiman has shown she won’t hold Branstad accountable. Jon has vowed to not just hold the governor accountable but to actively sniff our fraud, cronyism and ensure the government operates with business-like practices to run most efficiently and provide the most effective services to Iowans.
