DePasquale Officially Kicks Off Re-Election Bid

DePasqualeEugene DePasquale has officially announced his re-election bid.

“I plan to continue to be the watchdog of taxpayers and work to bring more attention to improvements in job creation, public health, transportation and education while fighting the difficult battles to protect taxpayers,” he stated.

DePasquale has in the past refused calls for him to run for both Governor and Senator, despite receiving overwhelmingly positive numbers in one of our reader polls last year.

He also looked to highlight the importance of his position in light of the budget impasse, saying “The state’s continued budget stalemate highlights the importance of our audits in discovering waste, as well as explaining the drastic costs of the impasse on our local school districts.”

Given Governor Wolf’s tough 2015, and the trials and tribulations of Rob McCord and Kathleen Kane, the Auditor General is the most popular statewide Democrat and therefore the party is heavily invested in his success.

With no primary challenge, he will likely face Northampton County Executive John Brown in the general election this November.

    Eugene is so independent. He points out who ever is wrong. Takes noside but the correct side. So clean

    It’s an easy job to find the faults of others. Pays nice too!

    Really Jake? He hasn’t been entirely kind to Wolf in his comments on the budget impasse.

  4. jake o. says:

    He should get a trophy for not being investigated as for being independent not so much he agrees with everything wolf has to say.
