Mullin endorses Cindy Byrd for State Auditor


In a statement reported by OKEnergyToday.com, Congressman Markwayne Mullin has endorsed Cindy Byrd in the GOP runoff for State Auditor:
“Cindy Byrd is exactly the right person in Oklahoma to look out for how officials and agencies are spending federal funds,” said Congressman Markwayne Mullin. “In my part of the state, we tend to look to FEMA for help following natural disasters. Cindy has been there making sure every dollar is accounted for.”

In announcing his endorsement, Rep. Mullin said Byrd’s work even caught the attention of the Inspector General’s Office because of her audits and reviews of federal funding.
“That’s important because with Cindy Byrd holding officials accountable, it increases the opportunity that FEMA funds will be able to fund recovery from the next natural disaster whether its in Oklahoma or another state.”

In response to the 2nd District Congressman’s endorsement Byrd said, “It’s humbling that Congressman Mullin is aware of the work we’ve done to safeguard public funds and provide accountability and transparency for taxpayers in the 2nd Congressional District. Thank you Congressmen Mullin for being an advocate for my campaign and accountability in government.”
