Campaign themes

Mayrack's campaign website listed the following issues for the 2014 race:

I am running for State Auditor because I believe, especially in Delaware, state government has the fundamental responsibility to safeguard and properly use each of our hard-earned tax dollars, to root out waste, and to put these tax dollars to work to help middle-class Delawareans realize their dreams and opportunities on their own terms. As a small business owner running my own law practice, I work hard for every dollar I earn, and I know firsthand the value of spending money effectively because it directly impacts my personal bank account.

I’ll apply that same ethic as your State Auditor. Delaware taxpayers need a new State Auditor who will work tirelessly to make sure that their valuable tax dollars are used effectively — and not wasted — in these difficult economic times. I will be a fair, independent, no-nonsense advocate for Delaware taxpayers. You work hard for your money, and you deserve an Auditor who will work just as hard to protect it.

As State Auditor, I will

  • follow through to make sure that state agencies implement needed improvements to save more money;
  • make sure that the State Auditor’s Office has the staff and resources it needs to do its job;
  • prioritize the work of the State Auditor’s Office based on objective criteria, not election year politics; and
  • improve whistleblower protections of state employees who report waste, fraud, and abuse.

The State Auditor has a focused scope of authority and responsibility, as defined by state statute, that covers all aspects of spending on state government, publicly-created entities, and public and charter schools (from both state and local property tax revenues). Because of this, the State Auditor must play an active and significant role — particularly in these tough economic times – in helping state agencies, local school districts, and charter schools find and save money and operate efficiently.

That is the philosophy and motivation I will bring to my job each day as State Auditor if you elect me to do the job.

I am asking for your support and your vote. Let’s see what we can accomplish together. [3]
