My Role

When all else fails, people call the Watchdog.

It’s my job to stick up for the little guy and keep businesses and governments honest. I hold them accountable through columns and blogs that expose shady business practices, unethical behavior, waste of public resources and outright fraud.

Businesses and governments have coughed up $350,000+ in cash, goods and services after hearing my bark or feeling my bite.
