State auditor candidate Anderson reports visiting 124 cities in six-week state tour

Pat Anderson, the endorsed Republican candidate for state auditor, reports that she visited 124 cities in the past six weeks.

That’s an average of three a day, if she were out there seven days a week. She said she’s talking to officials about local government aid, and requirements put on cities.

In a press release, she said:

“The LGA formula needs to be re-evaluated. There is no longer any linkage between need and funds received. We need to match the funds allocated with the needs of individual communities to provide essential services, and to do that, we need a better formula.”

Anderson served one term as state auditor in 2002 and then lost in 2006 to DFL Rebecca Otto. The two have a rematch in November.

Anderson said she’s planning another statewide tour in the fall.

    Pat Anderson is out “talking to” city officials. Her previous term showed that she should be out “listening”. The only formula for the GOP is”less”. Adjusting the formula is their code phrase for cutting budgets, whether cities or school districts.

    Anderson can barely file accurate campaign reports; I do not know how she can be an auditor.
