Meet North Carolina’s “most fearless fiscal leader”
Update on the election:
In this age of polarized politics, it is lovely to see the right and left endorse me for the same reasons: They believe my credentials as a Certified Public Accountant are important; and they believe that I will be an effective guard dog of the public’s money.
From the conservative leaning RhinoTimes: “Speaking of shaking things up in Raleigh, if you want to find out where some of our tax dollars are going, vote for Fern Shubert for state auditor. It gives me great pleasure to think of the fear that will run through the entrenched bureaucracy in Raleigh if Shubert is elected state auditor because she is smart, well trained and extremely tenacious. Shubert is a certified public accountant (CPA), which sets her apart from some in the race, but seems like it should be a requirement to be state auditor. She has also served in the NC state House and NC state Senate.” RhinoTimes John Hammer Editor, May 3, 2012
From the liberal leaning IndyWeekly: “We endorse Fern Shubert as the Republican candidate up to that task. A certified public accountant, she has uncovered, and helped recover, $500,000 in waste as a consultant for the town of Marshville, N.C., and was awarded the Accountant Advocate of the Year award by the U.S. Small Business Administration.” IndyWeekly, week of May 1st, 2012
When it comes to tax dollars, we can all agree. Get rid of waste, get rid of corruption and make government and politicians accountable. Simple, isn’t it.
I am Fern Shubert and I hope you’ll help me become our State Auditor. I’ve been a CPA for over 40 years and demonstrated my ability to do the job.
If you’ll check my record and compare it to the other candidates, I think you’ll agree that I am the best possible candidate.
Anyone can make promises, but can they keep them? My record shows why Jason Lewis called me North Carolina’s most fearless fiscal leader.
The Auditor’s job is far more important than many realize. The State Auditor supervises the department responsible for identifying financial risks and inefficiencies as well as being sure the books are not cooked. It is their job to be sure your tax dollars are working for you, rather than being wasted or stolen.
But if you want me to be sure your tax dollars are at work rather than being wasted, I need your help to get elected. I need your vote in the Republican primary and again in November.
Absentee ballots for the May 8th primary are already being mailed and early voting starts April 19th. Many voters ignore primaries, and the auditor’s race is often overlooked by those who do vote. I need your help to be sure that doesn’t happen.
If you want to help me, a contribution would be great and we’ve made it easy, offering your choice of PayPal or Piryx.
But even if you can’t contribute, would you please send a link to this web page to as many people as possible? Could you write letters to the editor or drop a few comments on Twitter or Facebook? Could you do something to help?
With your help, I can win, but unless you tell people this is a race that affects their wallet, a lot of people won’t even know it is on the ballot until they start to vote, and that is too late to learn about the candidates.
