Dear Fellow San Mateo County Residents,

As your San Mateo County Controller, I will safeguard your taxpayer dollars, reduce costs and improve transparency of financial information.

After 13 years of working in each area of the Controller’s Office, I currently serve as your Assistant County Controller.

This experience, along with my education and prior professional positions, have given me both the technical know-how and the leadership skills necessary to be your next Controller. I know what needs to be done and how best to do it. Now is not the time for inexperience or guesswork.

Our award-winning team has done great things, but we all know government can be better. I want to guarantee that problems get fixed, and that systems work on time and within budget. I will not make excuses or talk endlessly about problems – I want to fix them.

I will continue to work collaboratively with County departments, school districts and other governmental jurisdictions to guarantee independent, high quality accounting, auditing, payroll and tax accounting services in a courteous and cost effective manner.

I am a professional, not a politician. I am honored to have the support of the current Controller Bob Adler, former Controller Tom Huening, Supervisor Warren Slocum and Treasurer Sandie Arnott.  I have the skills and experience to do this job effectively and I plan to come to work everyday, as I have been for the past 13 years, excited to work for you and protect our County’s precious resources.

I respectfully ask for your vote.

Sincerely,

Juan Raigoza
