Our Mission 

Our mission is to promote accountable and equitable county government. We independently examine county programs; receive and investigate reports of suspected fraud, waste, and abuse of position; and serve as an impartial resource to help people resolve issues with county programs. We find out how well the county government is working, recommend improvements, and report to the public on our work.
