Missouri’s next auditor says she has what it takes to be the state’s top fiscal watchdog. Governor Jay Nixon (D) has announced Boone County Treasurer Nicole Galloway will be sworn into that office April 27.1
“Known for her professionalism, intelligence and integrity, Nicole Galloway is a tough, energetic, and fair-minded auditor who will be an outstanding watchdog for taxpayers,” Nixon said upon announcing his choice.
Galloway said her background as a Certified Public Accountant and A Certified Fraud Examiner will benefit the office.
“I have audited Fortune 500 companies both domestically and internationally, shining a light on the inner workings of large, complex organizations to ensure efficiency, effectiveness and accountability,” said Galloway.
Galloway told reporters she does intend to run in 2018, to remain in the auditor’s office.
“I wouldn’t have accepted this position if this wasn’t something that I was committed to,” Galloway said.
