Lorig announces candidacy for Auditor-Controller, stresses efficiency, effectiveness and accountability.

Mike Lorig, a 1st generation Humboldt native and an Accountant / Auditor with the County of Humboldt, today announced that he is running to be Humboldt County’s next Auditor-Controller. Mike is dedicated to making the Auditor-Controller's Office a more effective and efficient agency while working to ensure it is done without growing government.

“I have dedicated a big portion of my life to protecting taxpayer money, and I'm excited for the opportunity to apply my working experiences, and to bring creative ideas, to this critical position,” Lorig said. 

“I want to bring fresh ideas and implement new processes to make sure the Auditor’s office is as efficient and effective as it can be” Lorig said.  I’m confident I can do that and carry out the important job of protecting taxpayer money.”

Lorig knows the ins and outs of public accounting.  He has worked for the Department of Health and Human Services for the past 12+ years, helping to audit perhaps the most complex organization on the North Coast with an annual budget of more than $160 million.  He has an additional 38 years of experience in private, non-profit and business consultant sectors.

 “To bring real change to this important office it is critical to build and maintain partnerships with all levels of government, and in the community, in addition to having knowledge of governmental accounting.  Governing is about people, after all,” Lorig said.  “I know that good leaders create partnerships and effectively use resources that are already available.  So, when I hear a person who's brand new to government say the first thing they want to do is increase staffing, by almost 40%, while positions go unfilled, it sounds neither efficient nor effective to me” Lorig said.

“Instead of looking to throw more money at our problems, we need to find ways to do more with what we have.  That begins with leadership.  I look forward to being an advocate for improvements and enhancements within the Auditor-Controller’s office; an effective partner with others, and provide strong leadership going forward.” 

“I am the person who can lead this office going forward to make sure our tax dollars are used as efficiently and effectively as they should be. I am excited for the opportunity to serve as your Auditor-Controller and would be honored to have your vote in June.”
