Watkins clearly the best choice

It is indeed troublesome that a candidate who vies for Washington State Auditor — Troy Kelly — has had numerous complaints about his behavior being unprofessional or illegal over a period of 10 years now. The question being: he is seeking to oversee our state’s spending of public money?

There have been legal allegations against Troy Kelly even as current as 2010. They cannot be all innocent misunderstanding. Can they?

James Watkins, however, has no such skeleton in his closet. Watkins has an impressive professional work ethic and record that truly makes him the best all-around candidate for Washington State Auditor.
