Letter: Resident says Otto best choice for auditor in DFL primary election

To the editor:

Our current state auditor, Rebecca Otto, is arguably the most effective state auditor in America today, and the most recognized in the history of the Auditor’s office in Minnesota.

She was elected president of the National State Auditors Association by her peers.

She is a winner of the National Excellence in Accountability Award. She is the only Minnesota State Auditor to have achieved either of the above two national accomplishments.

Rebecca was named one of the 15 most influential professionals in government auditing at any level by the American Center for Government Auditing, a new branch of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the 180,000-member worldwide professional association of private sector auditors, alongside the Comptroller General of the United States and the Inspector General of the Department of Defense.

Please join me in voting for Rebecca Otto, the DFL-endorsed, two-term incumbent, for State Auditor in the DFL primary Aug. 12.
