Republican Walter Griffith, 54, of Wilkes-Barre has announced for the Luzerne County Controller position. Griffith is a self-described taxpayer advocate and government watchdog. Griffith is the owner of Rutter Auto Service Inc., and a lifelong resident of Luzerne County.
Griffith stated that he decided to seek the Republican nomination for controller to be “a fiscal watchdog at the county courthouse” because of what he calls a “lack of fiscal oversight by the current administration.” Griffith went on to say “if we’re going to have change in Luzerne County, we have to vote for a change.”
Griffith and his wife Mary Jo have two daughters.
