We would like to thank you for supporting our “burlesque of bras” in the 2018 Women’s Council of Realtors Mardi Bra Event. Although so much fun and perhaps a little risqué, the entire purpose is, we believe, well worthwhile, and we truly appreciate your sponsorship.
Marjorie Eckerd, President 2018

It is so important, in today’s tight fiscal environment, to have an Auditor who brings leadership and fiscal acumen to this position.
I believe Kathy McGuiness is the right person for the Auditor role. I know what Kathy can do for her constituents, as I have been a property owner in the City of Rehoboth for over a decade and have served side-by-side with Kathy as a fellow Commissioner over the past several months.
I have seen Kathy fight for financial transparency on large projects, and to look for ways to better manage costs and projects. I have also seen Kathy get results that have helped our community. From bringing Mobi-Mats® onto our beaches, to reinvigorating Main Street, Kathy gets things done for the residents, businesses, and guests of our City.
Kathy has been a small business owner, and understands systems such as health care, where there are always opportunities that will arise from the reviews by a strong auditor office, to create efficiencies that will free up resources for critical projects across our State.
Most importantly—the Auditor’s office can be more than it has been over past few years. By bringing a fresh perspective to the office, Kathy can find ways to run the office more efficiently and bring new ideas to the State, which will result in better fiscal transparency and management.
Delaware needs someone new in the Auditor’s Office—someone who will listen, apply new approaches, and who can accomplish tangible results. Kathy McGuiness is the right candidate for these times.

I write this letter in support of Kathleen Davies for Delaware State Auditor, a role of utmost importance in holding accountable our government and public institutions. Davies is the only candidate with the experience, independence, and integrity to serve effectively as State Auditor.
Davies’ experience outshines that of the other candidates. She has achieved and maintained several important certifications, served on national boards and committees, trained individuals and groups extensively, and worked as a public servant in auditing for over 25 years. Most recently, she worked as the Chief Administrative Auditor in the Delaware Auditor’s Office for over six years, delivering numerous process improvement and cost savings recommendations and reports regarding misuse of taxpayer funds.
Davies has a long history of independence and integrity. Dedicated to the highest ethical standards, she has never allowed political or personal considerations to impact her work or audit findings. In fact, she has taken difficult stands against corruption and the mismanagement of taxpayer money.
Over the years, she has produced many reports addressing transparency, inappropriate records destruction, wasteful spending, and fraudulent practices.
We’ve had the same State Auditor for 29 years. Davies is the leader this office needs, and will set Delaware on a path towards increased accountability and transparency.
I urge readers to research the State Auditor candidates for themselves, and then vote in the September Democratic primary and the November general election. I’m confident that readers will find Kathleen Davies to be the best choice for State Auditor.
