CINDY BYRD LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN FOR STATE AUDITOR
June 19, 2017 -- Oklahoma Deputy State Auditor Cindy Byrd officially kicks her campaign this week by announcing her run for State Auditor in her hometown of Coalgate. Byrd, a Certified Public Accountant, has spent more than 20 years working to provide accountability and transparency for state taxpayers.
"Voters need to give serious thought to who will be Oklahoma's next State Auditor," Cindy Byrd says. "This job is one of the most important positions in government. Public officials must be held accountable for how every dime of taxpayer money is spent. Of all the officers we elect, I believe none is more directly connected to taxpayers than the State Auditor. Oklahomans should expect a State Auditor who will work with officials to find efficiencies while also exposing waste and fraud of public funds."
During her 20 years with the State Auditor’s Office, Byrd has identified waste and exposed corruption at both the state and county level. She has been highly successful in her role as Deputy State Auditor.
