My Top 3 Priorities

  • Service to the citizens of Contra Costa County
  • Sustainable budgetary and fiscal management
  • Continue to improve the County’s credit rating



Auditor-Controller, Contra Costa County (1988–current)


California State University Hayward Bachelor of Science, Business Administration (not availa)



As your Auditor-Controller, customer service to citizens remains my top priority.  I have worked with the Assessor and Tax Collector to ensure property tax refunds are promptly issued to taxpayers.   

I am fiscally conservative, promoting spending restraints that protect your tax dollars.  During my time as Auditor-Controller, we:

  • Improved and maintained Contra Costa County’s credit score to the highest AAA bond rating.

  • Succeeded in recommending and building strong financial reserves.

  • Prepared annual financial reports that received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. 

I am a graduate of California State University Hayward with a degree in Business Administration.  I have over 30 years of experience in the Auditor-Controller’s Office, most recently serving as your elected Auditor-Controller. 

As a leader in budgeting and finance, I was appointed by the State Treasure to the Task Force on Bond Accountability, the State Controller appointed me to the California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission, and I have served on various committees for the State Association of County Auditors.

I possess the qualifications, leadership, and high ethical standards required to serve the citizens of Contra Costa County, continuing my work to manage and protect taxpayers’ dollars.   I would be honored to earn your continued trust and support.  Thank you.
