HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Tim DeFoor was recently sworn in as state auditor general.
He’s the first African American to win a state row office but that’s not the only glass ceiling he crashed through.
He also became the first African American in Dauphin County history to be elected controller.
“When I took the oath, I knew that I was setting up the path for other individuals. That’s because a lot sacrificed more than I ever could,” DeFoor said.
DeFoor is a graduate of Susquehanna Township High School, Harrisburg Area Community College, Penn State University of Pittsburgh, and Harrisburg University.
As auditor general, he is working to finish the audit of COVID-19 business closure waivers.
