Eugene A. DePasquale began his second term as Pennsylvania’s 51st Auditor General on January 17, 2017.
During his first term, Auditor General DePasquale's work touched the lives of all Pennsylvanians and helped protect children from abuse, end the backlog of untested rape kits, and ensure seniors have access to the services they need.
In addition, his audits identified nearly half-a-billion-dollars in misspent or potentially recoverable state money making him a recognized national leader on fiscal accountability and government transparency.
He has a proven track record of consistently working to make Pennsylvania government more ethical and open as the first member of the General Assembly, and the first statewide elected official, to post his expenses online.
His progressive and aggressive approach to tackling tough challenges makes him a sought-after speaker and earned him numerous statewide accolades along with national recognition as a Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellow and an appointment among The NewDEAL Leaders from across the country.
His work on charter school reform is frequently mentioned in the Washington Post and was featured on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Auditor General DePasquale was born and raised in Pittsburgh where he graduated from Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School as a member of a state championship football team.
He continued his athletic career and earned his undergraduate degree from the College of Wooster in Ohio where he played baseball and football. He went on to earn his Master’s in Public Administration from the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), and his law degree from Widener University School of Law.
He lives in York County where he enjoys watching his teenagers, Ben and Sarah, play music and sports.
When he is not traveling the state on speaking engagements, or announcing audit results, he coaches American Legion baseball in York and trains to defend his title as the only statewide elected official in the nation to complete the grueling Spartan Race Trifecta.
