Results-driven Leadership

Riverside County Auditor-Controller

A native Californian, I grew up in San Francisco and Hacienda Heights, California, where I graduated from Glen A. Wilson High School. I moved with my family to the Inland Empire in 1988.

I studied government operations at Harvard University, where I completed Harvard's renowned state and local government program for senior executives. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from UC Berkeley and a Master degree in management from the University of Redlands, California.

A Certified Public Accountant, I worked in the manufacturing industry for 24 years before entering public service. I was elected Riverside County's Auditor-Controller in November 2010 in a record-breaking election, receiving the most votes by any candidate in Riverside County's 120 year history. I was re-elected in 2014.

A US ARMY veteran, I served with various units, completing my service with Headquarters Engineer Command, Frankfurt, West Germany in 1974. Serving my nation was a profound life-changing experience.

As county auditor-controller, I lead the oversight of the county's $12 billion in budget and assets. I do so with a tough sense of ethics and integrity. The auditor-controller's office is responsible for many complex processes, including computing and distributing (apportioning) more than $3.2 billion in property taxes to K-14 schools, cities and special districts; and monitoring billions of dollars in cash-flows. The auditor-controller's office produces a $1.4 billion payroll for 18,000 county employees. In addition, the auditor-controller's office provides numerous analyses and regulatory reports to other government agencies.
I believe a leader’s value to the community is dependent on what he (or she) produces for the community. I call this results-driven leadership and is the basis of my leadership initiative. As the county's top fiscal officer performance is very important to me. In my first term, I turned-around an office that was in disarray and out of control. Under my leadership, performance, collaboration and service delivery improved substantially.
It is my vision to build an office at the cutting edge of governmental operations.

Top Priorities
•    Continue to strengthen fiscal oversight
•    Increase operational capacity
•    Continue delivering results

The auditor-controller's work impacts people's lives. We therefore have an obligation, indeed, a moral duty to continuously strive toward higher standards of performance. I will serve with the diligence and integrity our citizens expect of their public leaders.

Thank you for your trust and confidence.
