Speaking of the auditors race, the R’s are throwing their candidate’s many qualifications in the face of Balderas. They say Big Bill’s “Task Force on Ethics” seems to back R Lorenzo Garcia, since the report states: “The Task Force recommends that the state auditor have certain minimum qualifications. For instance, the state auditor could be required to be a certified public accountant…” Lorenzo is a CPA with lengthy government experience.
The key words are “could be required.” But it’s not as though Hector is a country rube. He does have a law degree, is a practicing attorney and served a term in the Legislature.
Oh sorry, we stand corrected. Balderas is an attorney and spent one term as a freshman legislator. Shoot, not only does that make him qualified to be an auditor. He could also be a surgeon, a pilot and an Olympic athelete. Insisting on qualifications. Silly us, what were we thinking?
