Analysis: Galloway Does Less Work In A Month Than Most Missourians Do In A Week

Nicole Galloway recently bragged about doing over 100 fundraising events during COVID. She also did a statewide campaign media tour during office hours. But is she doing the job taxpayers are paying her to do?

A Uniting Missouri PAC analysis of Auditor Galloway’s schedule during the pandemic, obtained via a public records request under the Missouri Sunshine Law, points to a resounding ‘no.’ In fact, during the pandemic Nicole Galloway’s calendar indicates that she has averaged fewer work hours in a month than most Missourians work in a week.

Uniting Missouri PAC Chairman John Hancock said, “It’s clear that Auditor Galloway is more focused on her struggling campaign than doing the job Missourians hired her to do. Missouri taxpayers deserve a refund.”
