“Protecting the People’s Interests” will be the theme of Ulster County Comptroller Elliott Auerbach’s breakfast speech to the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce on Nov. 15.  
      Ulster Community College Foundation, celebrating their 40th Anniversary, will be sponsoring the breakfast, scheduled for 7:30-9:00 a.m. at the Best Western Plus in Kingston.
“We’re really going to present an illuminating look at county government transparency,” Auerbach said of his breakfast remarks. “That’s our underlying theme for that day.”
Auerbach has been Ulster County’s only comptroller since the office was established in 2008 and he said the charter form of government has been a huge improvement.
“It truly has changed transparency and accountability in county government,” Auerbach said. “I like to say every number has a story and every story has a number. That’s really what we do here is look at the numbers. That will be the underlying theme of my speech.
Auerbach said his office has conducted more than 30 audits, reports and reviews this year of the county’s 40 offices, departments and contract agencies.
His office also has reviewed some of the top non-profits the county funds each year.
