Sun Gazette: Hope bill on Arlington auditor sails through subcommittee Print

Created:  Wednesday, February 4, 2015 12:00PM


A measure by Del. Patrick Hope (D-47th) allowing the County Board to hire an auditor passed a subcommittee unanimously Feb. 4, moving on to the full House Committee on Counties, Cities and Towns.

County officials, who several weeks ago reacted negatively to Hope's proposal, did not oppose it. The county's Richmond lobbyist, Pat Carroll, spoke in favor of the measure at the subcommittee hearing.
