I want to express my support for Assistant Controller Juan Raigoza for the position of county controller.
Raigoza is the person who has come up through the ranks with a proven record of success; there is no question in my mind Juan Raigoza is the person best qualified to be our controller.
Since 1995, I have watched the Controller’s Office change from a labor-intensive producer of rudimentary financial reports to an office that produces award-winning reports and is an efficient, money saving center for you. Juan Raigoza has been a key player in these changes and has proven, by doing, that he has the superior abilities to do the job.
Juan Raigoza has the proven skills, experience and professionalism to keep the Controller’s Office working so well for us, the citizens of San Mateo County. I’ve sat in the pilot’s seat, and I know what it takes to do the job right. I truly only want what is best for the citizens of this county. Raigoza is a professional, not a politician, who has proven he can continue to improve transparency and efficiency in the Controller’s Office.
I hope your vote for county controller will be for Raigoza. I am completely confident he will continue successfully protecting your (and my) county dollars. He has proven his abilities and has my complete confidence. Raigoza will continue to serve you well.
The letter writer is the San Mateo County controller.
