I'm proud to be Oakland's elected City Auditor, working for and reporting to the citizens of this incredible City.

As your eyes and ears inside City Hall, it is my job to ask the tough questions, shine a light on City operations and ensure that tax dollars are being spent efficiently and effectively in Oaklanders' best interests. Together, I know we can make Oakland the best it can be.

Committed to serving Oakland with the utmost integrity,

City Auditor
