McKeown defends her record through advertising
Clallam County, WA - 11/3/02 - Cathleen McKeown, incumbent for Clallam
County Auditor, has recently come under fire in the local newspapers,
accused of not having a state CPA license.
* In 1986, I graduated from Western Washington University College of Business and Economics. I carried a Batchelor of Arts Degree in Accounting and a minor in Business Administration.
* In 1987, I took and passed the Certified Public Accountant exam.
* In 1987, my son was killed in an automobile accident.
* In 1988, I moved back to Port Angeles and opened my accounting and tax practice fulfilling my goal of becoming a professional tax preparer.
* For the next few years, my life was a blur from the trauma of my sonís death. I immersed myself in my business.
* I believed that I had paid my license fee upon passing the exam. Iíve maintained my skills and fulfilled my continuing education requirements.
* I am presently working with the State Board of Accountancy and anticipate that this problem will be resolved shortly.
As your auditor, Iíve worked hard to make this office an asset to the financial well-being of the county. I am embarrassed and humiliated by this situation but thankful to all of you who have overwhelmed me with your friendship and support.
My record proves that I am qualified to be your Auditor. I appreciate your vote.
