Special Recognition from State Auditor

For the first time in our history, the Finance Authority was awarded the Ohio Auditor of State Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting. It’s a significant accomplishment; the Auditor’s office reviewed 6,000 public entities’ 2022 audits and presented this award to just 10% of those reviewed.  

Finance Authority President Patty Huddle accepted the award on behalf of the organization and its board of directors. “A variety of people contributed to this recognition,” said Huddle. “Our audit committee of Greta Russell, Darci Congrove, Christian Gonzalez, and Darnita Bradley, and staff are to be commended. 

Special thanks also go to CFFA staff member Susan Brown and former president Jean Carter Ryan for running point on the audit and Marcy Altomorare for her contributions..  Thanks as well to our CPA, Steve Julian of Julian & Grube, for his expert guidance over the years. 

Ohio Auditor of State’s Office representative Scott Brown presented the award to Huddle at the September 20, 2023, Board of Directors meeting at CFFA headquarters.
