MEDIA ADVISORY FOR:
DENNIS E WILLIAMS FILES WITH THE DELAWARE DEPARTMENT OF ELECTIONS TO FORM COMMITTEE TO RUN FOR DELAWARE STATE AUDITOR OF ACCOUNTS.
Former State Representative Dennis E Willliams announced this morning that he will be seeking the office of Delaware State Auditor of Accounts in the November 2018 election. Williams established a Statement of Organization with the Delaware Department of Elections for the committee ‘Williams for Auditor’ earlier today.
Representative Williams has been urged by voters, Democratic Committee members, and elected officials throughout the state to bring his experience and qualifications to the position of State Auditor. Dennis has had a career that makes him uniquely qualified for this position.
Representative Williams has over 30 years of experience in business, government, and non-profit accounting, finance, and management. He is currently the Chief Financial Officer of a major research library and archive. Dennis is a lifelong Delawarean, a graduate of Concord High School and the University of Delaware, where he earned degrees in Accounting and Financial Management. Dennis also earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton/Engineering).
Representative Williams applied his knowledge and experience to his work as a member of the General Assembly’s Joint Capital Infrastructure Budget Committee, helping to maintain and bring new jobs to the state. He fought for more transparency, accountability, and efficiency from state departments that came before that committee and will bring that fight to the rest of state government. In announcing this campaign, Dennis said “My goal is to focus on modernization and best practices, to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being spent more efficiently and effectively, so we can invest in education, public safety, and the many non-profits that do so much for our communities and our state.”
