Council appoints Stokes as city auditor

Friday, May 29, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Yesterday, City Council unanimously and officially approved the appointment of Corrie Stokes as the new city auditor. Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo praised Stokes, who has worked in the Office of the City Auditor for the past 16 years. “She’s served that department and this community deeply and well, and is highly respected among her peers — not just in the city of Austin, but also nationally,” Tovo said. “I’ve had the privilege of working with Ms. Stokes and I believe she is really an asset to the city of Austin. Her references were glowing. They spoke to her passion for the field, and the respect and the trust and the admiration that others have for her.” Stokes has filled the position of auditor since the departure of former Auditor Ken Mory. She will receive a salary of $145,000 annually, beginning June 1.
