I put transparency, honesty, and clean audits at the top of my priority list on day one and I am so proud of the hard work from my staff and employees around City Hall to make it happen. Lastly, it shows that good honest work can be recognized even in today's divisive environment, and I thank the Auditor of State for acknowledging City Hall's efforts even in the midst of our head-to-head campaign, last fall.
