"Mayoral Candidate Jean Jacobs Reporting"

Ladies and Gentlemen I was honored and compelled to attend the Press Conference on Tuesday February 15, 2011 at City Hall. I had the privilege to speak with many of the State Representatives and personally spoke with New York State Comptroller, Thomas P. DiNapoli regarding the present situation. When Comptroller DiNapoli opened up questions and answers from the public, I stood up and spoke on behalf of the taxpayers.
During my Professional Career as a Finance Director for many years, I have had the opportunity to work with many distinguished Auditing Firms throughout New York State. I have also worked directly with the New York State Division of Finance on many pilot projects for many years. One constant critical component was creating the position of governance and institutional management on a daily basis and protecting the budget process with proper checks and balances in place, for the very purpose of audit and control.
I urge each and every one of you to hold the public officials accountable who manage and govern your money each and every day. Demand that that they implement audit and control requirements that protect the tax payers and their money.
"Stand Up and Make A Difference"
Respectfully Submitted,
Jean Jacobs
GOP Candidate for Mayor
City of Kingston
