Why Dave Boliek for Auditor?

As a former prosecutor, Dave has the expertise to find and root out government corruption. Dave is the most experienced candidate. He is the only candidate who has run a small business. As Chairman of the UNC Board of Trustees Dave created the university’s first Audit Committee, balanced the budget, and eliminated the university’s operating deficit for the first time in years.‌
