Different experiences provide contrast in auditor’s race

SEATTLE – One is a state senator with a background in conducting audits. The other runs one of Washington’s biggest county governments. So which kind of experience is more important in the Washington state auditor’s race between Republican Sen. Mark Miloscia and Democratic Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy?

Candidates for Washington state auditor vow to restore credibility

SEATTLE – Restoring the credibility of the Washington State Auditor’s Office tops the list of priorities for those seeking to replace departing Auditor Troy Kelley, whose term was marred by his federal fraud indictment and seven-month leave of absence. Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy, state Sen. Mark Miloscia and Seattle lawyer Jeff Sprung are the leading candidates to replace Kelley. Forensic accountant Mark Wilson, of Bellevue, and engineer David Golden, of Spokane, are also running but have raised little to no money.

Pat McCarthy is safe choice for state auditor

After the Kelley fiasco, we hope voters play it safe. The candidate with the best track record in public office management is Pat McCarthy, and she gets our endorsement.
