DES MOINES – State Auditor Mary Mosiman was ordered to pay back a week’s worth of vacation pay she accepted and her opponent in the upcoming election pounced on her over the mis-deed.

Iowa State Auditor candidate Jon Neiderbach released a statement on recent developments with State Auditor Mary Mosiman’s time as Deputy Director in the Secretary of State’s office.

“The audit released today makes it clear that the current auditor doesn’t understand government principals that hold its employees accountable. Basic personnel procedures require that all employees fill out timesheets and vacation leave requests precisely so these problems don’t occur. Not only did political cronies get paid for time for which there’s no record they worked, Auditor Mosiman herself accepted taxpayer money later found to be an over-payment that she had to return. It’s alarming that any leader in state government – let alone the current State Auditor – would do such a thing and benefit from vacation over-payment at the expense of Iowans.”

“Ms. Mosiman’s failure to notice that her own vacation hour pay-out didn’t accurately reflect her actual earned vacation total – coupled with her failure to blow the whistle on special treatment for political cronies, and her reluctance to audit the Secretary of State’s office once she became State Auditor – raises serious concerns about her competency as an auditor. We now know that she personally benefited from her own bad management while at the Secretary of State’s Office. Iowa taxpayers deserve better,” stated Neiderbach.

Jon Neiderbach spent 14 years performing fiscal and policy analysis for the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau (now called the Legislative Services Agency). He then spent 15 years with the Iowa Department of Human Services, where he instituted technological and other efficiencies in specific divisions and department-wide. Neiderbach served on the Des Moines School Board for four years, including a year as Board President.

The State Auditor is responsible for state and local governments’ financial and program review.

Meanwhile, Mosiman announced Thursday that she and fellow Republican candidates Joni Ernst and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds will be in Mason City on October 4, 2014 from 4:30-5:30 PM at the party’s Cerro Gordo County Victory Office, located at 124 4th Street SW, to conduct a meet and greet event with the public.
