I am stunned and saddened by the news of the death this morning of Charles Anderson, Commission Auditor for Miami-Dade County. Mr. Anderson was the first Commission Auditor for Miami-Dade County. He was selected to fill this important role in 2004, following the creation of the Office of Commission Auditor by the voters of Miami-Dade County. He was a Certified Public Account and Certified Inspector General and previously served as an Inspector General with the State of Florida for 10 years. Prior to that, Mr. Anderson spent seven years as a Senior Auditor for the City of Tallahassee. I extend my sincere condolences to his wife, son, friends and colleagues at the Office of the Commission Auditor.
