As an Attorney and former CEO, Ryan Wilson is the only qualified candidate running to be Minnesota’s next State Auditor.

Ryan’s business acumen, legal expertise and life-long dedication to community service make him highly qualified to serve as Minnesota’s state auditor. As a founder and former CEO of a global medical device research firm, Ryan understands the value of a dollar and the need to not waste or mismanage financial resources. As an attorney Ryan understands how to ask the right questions and how to look in the right places to root out fraud and corruption.” (campaign website).

Ryan Wilson has a long history of Public Service.

“Ryan has a long history of service to Minnesota and his local community. He currently serves on several non-profit boards and has aided local governments including through several appointed roles. He was appointed a planning commissioner for the City of Blaine and he currently is a member of a city appointed working group in Maple Grove to assess the feasibility of a $100 million dollar community center expansion (campaign website).”

Removing Politics from the Auditor’s Office

“The Office of the State Auditor should be a non-partisan watchdog of Minnesota government finances. Math is not partisan. No government body at any level should get a free pass from accountability and transparency. A state auditor should call “balls and strikes” and be willing to follow the money wherever it leads.

As your state auditor I promise to keep partisan politics out of the office and to serve ALL Minnesotans.”

Ensuring Accountability

“Eliminating waste, fraud and abuse will be the cornerstone of my administration. Billions of dollars in federal COVID relief has come into Minnesota and people are rightly asking “where did the money go?” I will ensure governments are held accountable for their spending decisions.”

Transparent Government

“We are all better when decisions are made in the light. I will work to ensure that Minnesotans fully understand how their hard earned tax dollars are spent, how government contracts are awarded and how we measure the results of our investments.”

Julie Blaha Tried to Hide Drunk Driving Accident

See Press Release

DFL Party Chair, Ken Martin rushed to scene to “protect Julie Blah and DFL colleague’s image as Elected Officials.”

“Last August, the media reported Senator Melisa Lopez Franzen (DFL-Edina) and State Auditor Julie Blaha (DFL-Ramsey) were involved in a serious accident leaving FarmFest, an annual agriculture event held in Redwood Falls, MN. At the time, reports only indicated alcohol was not a factor and the accident was just that, an accident.

However, investigative reporting done by Alpha News indicates body camera footage taken and official reports filed on the day of the accident include mentions of an open, mostly full, cold can of White Claw hard seltzer in the Jeep driven by Blaha. Alpha News also reports Lopez Franzen told law enforcement the can was empty at the time of the crash. FarmFest does not allow any outside food or beverage and the police report indicated there was a full cooler of adult beverages in the car.”

Julie Blaha’s goals are unclear…

On her campaign website, Julie Blaha doesn’t show any interest in stopping corruption, eliminating waste, or providing transparency.

What is she doing as Auditor? That must be a secret too.

This is an independent expenditure prepared and paid for by the Republican Party of Minnesota.  It is not coordinated with or approved by any candidate nor is any candidate responsible for it.
