Stutler: Committed to working together

Linn County residents deserve a competent, qualified auditor who believes in accountability, transparency and cooperation.

I believe I am that person and that’s why I’ve chosen to stand as the Democratic Party’s candidate for Linn County Auditor.

Throughout my extensive military service, academic studies and professional opportunities, I’ve worked to ensure the job is done smoothly and effectively. I care about customer service and process. On time and within budget are my goals.

I care about making our government of the people work for all people. Public servants should work together toward our common interest, for the common good.

Holding a bachelors of science in business management and an associates of applied science in information networking, I understand good business practices.

I have a logistics background; I know how to manage facilities, budgeting and purchasing. My purchasing will be done within established rules, regardless of current practices to the contrary.

I am a proven leader, serving in leadership roles on various governmental bodies and not-for-profit entities.


One of my first objectives when elected is to hire a certified public accountant to assist with the financial responsibilities of the office. The successful candidate will be brought on board using long-standing county hiring practices. Cronyism will not play a part in my hiring decisions, regardless of current practices to the contrary.

I am committed to working closely and collaboratively with the treasurer, recorder and all stakeholders to ensure quality customer service. I’m asking for your vote. Thank you.

Joe Stutler
