William “Bill” White
Democrat for County Auditor
It’s time to change Du Page County government. We need a transparent budget process. We need to stop awarding “no bid” contracts to political donors. We need good government which returns fair value to our residents while rejecting the ideology of austerity. Starting on Day One, Bill will fight for these objectives as your Democratic county auditor.
I am Running for Du Page County Auditor
I am running for Du Page County Auditor to hold county officials accountable to be transparent, efficient and genuinely responsive to the needs of our community. I will shine daylight on “no bid” contracts being awarded to campaign donors. I will be a vigilant watchdog who will fight for good government without being the enemy of government.
I’ve seen first hand what good government looks like. I have participated in good government having been elected to the District 99 Board of Education (including time as board president) and the Downers Grove Village Council (including time as mayor pro tem). District 99 and the Village of Downers Grove are examples of governments that are transparent, efficient and return genuine value to the community in exchange for the tax dollars collected from the community.
I will bring my experience to the position of auditor and beginning on Day One of my term I will demand transparency and accountability from our county government.
