Continuing to Fight for Working Families in the Auditor’s Office ~ IN YOUR CORNER with AUDITOR Dizoglio

By: State Auditor Diana DiZoglio – 1-23

Hello Valley Patriot Readers,

It has been a true honor and pleasure serving the great people of the Merrimack Valley in the Massachusetts Legislature. Every day, I’ve walked out my door in the morning determined to make meaningful progress and change that helps people at home. This public service has been fueled by a desire to make a difference and by the responsibility I’ve felt to reward persons’ faith in me to serve as State Representative and State Senator.

Together, we have made a difference on issues of tremendous importance to our community, including supporting our public schools with the local aid they need; fighting for funding toward resources and services for our seniors and veterans; passing campaign finance reform to increase transparency and accountability in elections; reducing prescription and health care costs; and providing our residents and small businesses with sorely needed resources to get through the pandemic.

My paramount goal has always been and will continue to be to ensuring residents’ voices are heard loud and clear on Beacon Hill. This will continue to be the case as I make the transition from the Senate to my new role as State Auditor.

In this role, I am committed to building upon the work we’ve done in the Legislature to drive an agenda of transparency and accountability for the taxpayers and people who are served by our government. This means transparency and accountability, as well as performance.

In the State Auditor’s Office, our team will work to improve the performance of your government and report on what’s going right and what’s going wrong, so you know what is being done with your tax dollars. Taxpayers spend billions each year on state government, public education, the T and quasi-governmental agencies. You deserve accountability.

Over the coming months, I look forward to continuing conversations with residents across Massachusetts as we work to ensure all working families have access to and accountability from our state government, regardless of family background, bank balance or zip code.

I am excited to announce that helping to lead this mission into the Auditor’s Office will be my transition director, Sasha Weinreich of North Andover. A graduate of Babson College and Brandeis University, Sasha served as chair of the North Andover Finance Committee and currently serves as the Director of Portfolio Management for the real estate firm Eden Properties and President and Director of Cyrus Holding Co., with extensive experience in finance and operations. A tireless advocate for transparency in our state government, including reforms around taxpayer-funded nondisclosure agreements, Sasha will play an integral role in helping us to hit the ground running.

As I depart the Senate and transition into the Auditor’s Office, I want to again thank, from the bottom of my heart, the incredible people of the Merrimack Valley. Our communities are enriched by countless talented, thoughtful and caring people who inspire me and fill me with joy because of what they do to make a positive difference for so many.

I wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year and look forward to getting to work!

Yours in service, Diana ◊
