Tamko CEO: Joplin Audits Needed

The President and CEO of Tamko Building Products, based in Joplin, is one of those who called for an audit of both the City of Joplin and the Joplin School District. In a statement provided to News Talk KZRG, David Humphreys says he thinks an audit would be "useful to provide taxpayers with a clear understanding" of both entities' finances and expenditures. See the full statement below.

"As a citizen of Joplin, I believe it would be useful for there to be an audit of both the City of Joplin and the R8 School District to provide the taxpayers with a clear understanding of the finances and the expenditures of both the City and the R8 School District.  As taxpayers, we should be interested in assuring that financial matters are handled both appropriately and with care. Under the statutory procedure allowing any Missouri taxpayer to start the petition process, a formal request was made to the State Auditor’s office."
