    About Tim DeFoor

    With a heart for public service and a passion for eliminating crime and waste, Tim DeFoor is a proven steward of Pennsylvania’s values and resources. He has more than 25 years of combined experience in statewide fraud investigating and auditing, in both public service and private industries.

    Tim began his career in public service as a Special Investigator with the Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General. He then advanced to the role of Special Agent with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. In 2015, Tim became the first African American elected Controller in Dauphin County where he quickly earned a reputation as a fiscal watchdog and trusted leader saving and recovering over $1 million of taxpayer dollars during his first term in office.

    The auditor general was created by the General Assembly in 1809 and was appointed by the governor until 1850 when it became an elected office. The department’s mission is to serve Pennsylvania taxpayers by improving government accountability and transparency through the most effective use of taxpayer dollars. With his extensive experience in statewide government, his desire for protecting taxpayer funds, and his auditing background, Tim is uniquely qualified to serve Pennsylvania citizens as the Commonwealth’s Auditor General. DeFoor’s historic victory gives him the distinction as the first African American elected to a statewide row office in Pennsylvania and Tim is the first Republican to serve as Auditor General since 1997.

    We will be hosting an Inaugural Celebration on June 8, in Harrisburg, when hopefully restrictions will be lessened allowing for a gathering of supporters.
