Why Auditor General

A Vision for Pennsylvania: Malcolm Kenyatta’s Commitment to Families, Education, and Worker Protections as Auditor General

I love Pennsylvania.

I’ve traveled all across this commonwealth and met countless families just like my own—hardworking people who deserve the basic bargain of a good school, a good job, and a safe community. Unfortunately, these basics are often out of reach. We deserve a government that truly serves working families. That starts with addressing the issues head-on and having an Auditor General who stands up for those too often overlooked by our government.

I’m running for Auditor General because it’s time for the underdog to become the watchdog for Pennsylvania’s working families. I want to ask the tough questions, streamline government operations, and build coalitions to fix what’s broken. For over half a decade as a State Representative, I’ve worked to protect the right to vote, choose, and be protected in the job.

I’ve led the charge to root out government corruption and waste. Because every dollar taken or mismanaged means there is a working family who is going without the support they depend on. I know this isn’t hypothetical, it’s all too real.

As Auditor General, I will rebuild the Bureau of School Audits, restart the annual compliance audits that the current Auditor General ended, and demand accountability from all our schools—including cyber charters.

I will also stand up for our workers by creating the first-ever Bureau of Labor and Worker Protections. From your first job to the day you retire, someone should have your back and I will. This office will crack down on wage theft, employee misclassification, and union busting. Every worker deserves a decent wage and the right to unionize. Additionally, I’ll ensure our pension funds are properly funded and managed to protect retirees’ futures.

Moreover, I will use the office to support efforts to make our communities healthier and safer. We need transparency on how large hospital nonprofits and long-term care providers use state dollars. We must analyze our approach to community safety and gun violence reduction to target investments in strategies that effectively reduce crime, particularly gun crimes.

People across Pennsylvania have welcomed me into their neighborhoods, homes, and faith communities, sharing their stories and listening to mine. We’ve discussed the state’s problems but also its immense promise. The young people born today will live into the next century, and what we do now will determine the inheritance we leave them.
