A busy schedule won’t keep Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen from digging into school board funding.
“In the very near future we’re going to be launching a comprehensive effort to make examinations about how well, how honestly and how effectively school board dollars are being spent at the local level,” he says.
Edelen says he’s also concerned with public university finances and frequent tuition increases.
“I’m keenly interested in the affordability of higher education and will be active as soon as we can find an angle for insuring the taxpayers get a good value for their dollar,” he says.
So far, Edelen has completed the annual statewide audits, a look into University of Louisville Hospital funding, a special audit into Richer Farmer's terms as agriculture commissioner and several other reports.
