Scott Conklin, Rep. of the 77th Legislative District of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, has announced his campaign for PA Auditor General.
“I have always thought of myself as a hard-working voice for working people, and have served with the trust of those I represent in Harrisburg. Now, I believe is the time to use my voice for all Pennsylvanians by holding our government accountable,” said Conklin.
Once elected, Conklin said he will continue to build upon the confidence Pennsylvanians have in the Office of Auditor General by ensuring tax dollars are spent responsibly and legally across the board.
He said he will also maintain a watchful eye on government-funded programs to guarantee that resources are being managed efficiently and appropriately.
“I have served my community for over 20 years. I was chairman of the Centre County Commissioners and in charge of balancing a $90-million-dollar budget, chairman of the Salary Board, and served on the retirement board, employee benefits trust board, and the board of assessment,” said Conklin.
“I brought that experience to Harrisburg as a Representative and earned a seat on the appropriations committee as a freshman. I want to leverage those decades of experience to help all Pennsylvanians.”
With clear and responsible fiscal focus, Conklin said he will fight for the hard-working residents of Pennsylvania.
In addition, Conklin said his experience with legislation combatting domestic violence, encouraging economic investment and fighting against partisan politics, all uniquely qualify him to protect vulnerable Pennsylvanians from waste, fraud and predatory practices.
“As Auditor General, I will fiercely protect Pennsylvanians from waste and corruption,” said Conklin.
