Shawnee Woman Running For
State Auditor General

SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP — Rose Marie Davis has handled audits for multi-billion-dollar entities in the government, education and private business sectors, so she is not intimidated by the daunting challenge if elected to the state Auditor General position in the upcoming Primary and General elections.
"I've seen all types of accounting operations and organizations – federal, state and local entities," said Davis, who serves as vice chairman of the Smithfield Township Board of Auditors as a resident of Shawnee Village in nearby Monroe County.
She also works with a financial management consulting business out of her home, collaborating largely with Galleros Robinson LLP in New York City.
She has handled audits for the City of New York as well as New York State and recently for the City University of New York (CUNY) system, all entities dealing with finances well into the tens and even hundreds of billions of dollars.
Davis also has worked in the government sector in the office of the Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a few years in the mid 1980s shortly after graduating from Texas Woman's University in Denton Texas where she studied political science and law.
She completed degree work in political science along with accounting in pursuit of her CPA.
But Davis liked the allure of the big city and overseeing big bankrolls as she eventually moved to the New York area to work in the financial area for the public accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
She also has worked as an internal auditor for Continental Grain Co., known more recently as ContiGroup, headquartered on Park Avenue in New York City.
So why would Davis want to take a different route of campaigning against at least five other Democratic candidates and two Republican hopefuls in her first shot at an elected position?
Details on her candidacy can be viewed on www.rosieforpa.com.
She considers herself the "best and most qualified candidate" in a field that includes a nonprofit leader from Lancaster County, a former Philadelphia deputy mayor, a city controller from Pittsburgh and another former city controller from Philadelphia on the Democratic side along with two candidates on the Republican side, a Lancaster County Commissioner and Dauphin County Controller......For more information pick up a copy at a local vendor or subscribe.
