< Previous Page

Johnson says this year’s releases are similar in number and schedule to other years, which voters can check on his website. A Salt Lake Tribune review of that data shows that between 2007 and 2011, his office released an average of 44 audits of all types by mid-June. This year, it had released fewer: 35.

The winner of the June 26 GOP primary will face Democrat Mark Sage, who also is neither a CPA nor an auditor, and Constitution Party candidate Richard Proctor.
