“I am honored that Philadelphians went to the polls to elect me the next City Controller – and the first female controller, at that. Since announcing my candidacy nearly one year ago, I have traveled across the city, meeting with voters and hearing their concerns, and the overwhelming message to me was that Philadelphians want a government that works for them. That was the basis of my campaign, and I am committed to restoring trust in our government so that it better serves Philadelphians and provides them with the services they need. I will achieve this by auditing each city department every year, with a focus not only on rooting out fraud but on modernization and best practices to save millions of dollars to put towards the needs of our city. I want to take the tough stances to make government work better and look forward to tackling these big tasks to move our city forward.”
