One of the five elected officials for the state of Wyoming, the State Auditor serves as the chief comptroller and payroll officer. The Auditor protects public money by ensuring that it is properly accounted for in the most efficient and cost effective means at all times. Promoting transparency and financial accountability are the Auditor's top priorities. For a history of Wyoming State Auditors please click, here
