>From Charles Baum, LP Candidate for State Auditor
Susan Montee has done an outstanding job in producing audits. In 2009, with
a staff of approximately 130 and a budget close to 5 million dollars, she
turned out 151 audits. So what has been the net result of all of these
audits? Do we know if these audits saved the state any money? How many of
her recommendations were acted upon? We just don't know. The audits are very
thorough but they don't tend to differentiate the important from the
unimportant. In the Jennings School district "*Administrative salaries
increased by a total of approximately $988,000 from fiscal year 2006 to
2008. The increase is primarily due to the creation of nine administrative
positions*" is given the same weight as the city of Florissant's
audit. " *Rental
revenue lost to the city ranged from approximately $11,600 to $18,200. City
tables and chairs were used for the Mayor's wedding anniversary at no charge
*."(For shame!) The contrast of such audits should seem clear-cut. However,
both carried similar press. I want to know who hired theses administrators
for $988,000 dollars? Are they still there?
Simply put, I would like fewer audits and more net results. We don't really
know if the Auditor's office saves the state money or costs the state money.
As State Auditor I would focus on the important issues, do what I can to
name and expose those responsible, get the media involved and put pressure
on to actually cause some of my recommendations to be enacted.
