The latest name making the rounds for Missouri’s next auditor — Darlene Green


Remember the name “Darlene Green.”

She might be the the next state auditor of Missouri, according to sources in the Missouri Statehouse.

Insiders say Green, the elected comptroller of the city of St. Louis, is on the short list for the job to replace Tom Schweich.

Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, makes the pick.

“She directs all the fiscal affairs of the City for a combined annual budget of more than $900 million. As Chief Fiscal Officer, she is a member of the Executive Branch of City government, the Board of Estimate and Apportionment. Ms. Green is a member of many Citywide boards and commissions, including the Airport Commission, and is a Trustee for the City’s Retirement Systems.”
