Auditor's explanation

On Jan. 4, I handed in my resignation as an Upper Tyrone Township auditor, effective immediately. I became an elected auditor in 2010 and have yet to see the books, meet with the CPA or even do an audit.

The Upper Tyrone Township supervisors will not let us auditors do our job. They were elected by the same people who elected us and have been asked on several occasions why they hired an outside company to do the audit. The answer is it is cheaper.

Well, the auditors get paid for one-and-a-half hours per year per auditor, as compared to a CPA. You do the math.

Township auditors want to see all records. With an outside company, they see only what supervisors provide.

This has been going on for some time. It's time the township supervisors stop hiding the truth from residents.
