A native Californian, Paul Angulo holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in government from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master’s degree in management from the University of Redlands, California. Paul studied government operations at Harvard University and is a graduate of Harvard's prestigious Senior Executive in State and Local Government Program. He is certified in strategic management, holding certificates in strategic and performance management from UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
In addition, Paul Angulo is a Certified Public Accountant with 24 years business experience in the private sector before entering public service. He was first elected Riverside County Auditor-Controller in November 2010 in a record-breaking election win, receiving the most votes for a county level race in the history of Riverside County.
A United States Army veteran, Paul served with various units, completing his military service with Headquarters (HHQ) Engineer Command, Frankfurt, West Germany. He was honorably discharged from active duty in 1974.

Continue to Strengthen fiscal oversight
Increase operational capacity
Continue Delivering Results
Requiring an irreproachable level of ethics and integrity, Paul Angulo leads the oversight of the county's $4.7 billion budget and $7.3 billion in taxpayer assets. The auditor-controller's office also computes and transfers more than $3.2 billion in property taxes to K-14 schools, cities and special districts. The office audit's 52 departments, ranging from social services, fire, law enforcement, mental health and the County’s Regional Medical Center for fraud, wasteful spending and fiscal abuse.
In addition, the office runs the processes for a $1.2 billion payroll for 20,000 county employees, while paying more than $1.1 billion in County expenses on a fast turn-around basis. All this necessarily requires the County auditor-controller provide a high level of expertise in government operations, organizational development and collaborative leadership to achieve the results expected by the taxpayer.
"Because our work impacts the lives of people we have the obligation, indeed, the moral duty to continuously work towards a higher standard of performance. I am committed to continue working to ensure the Riverside County Auditor-Controller's Office remains at the cutting-edge of government fiscal operations. I will serve with the diligence and integrity our citizens expect of their public leaders. I respectfully request your vote on June 3, 2014."
Thank you for your trust and confidence.
God Bless America!
