Another candidate has joined the 2016 race for Washington State auditor. It’s a Seattle attorney who’s never run for public office.
The auditor’s job is to shine a light on how public dollars are spent…or misspent.
Democrat Jeff Sprung said he’s had a similar career focus - fighting for taxpayers. And he wants to bring that experience, and a fresh perspective, to state government.
“I’m an outsider to Olympia and I have no stake in fighting old battles," Sprung said. "For the job of the people’s watchdog, I think that’s exactly what’s needed.”
