Chris McCoy, Training and Outreach Manager, Citizen Watchdog Team
About: Chris is a former small business owner and executive director of a trade organization, so she comes with a unique perspective. She has always been an advocate for free markets and limited government. Chris has been a political activist for years and believes sunshine is the best disinfectant. Most recently she worked with the grass roots developing trainings and leading people to participate in their government. Currently she sets up the Citizen Watchdog Training programs to help citizens learn how they can watch for waste, fraud, and abuse!
Hobbies: Politics, baking, reading, and history. In my spare time, I avoid mundane chores by volunteering for causes I believe in.
Favorite books: Gone with the Wind, biographies on historical figures,
Favorite historical figures: Patrick Henry, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Ben Franklin, Maggie Thatcher
Favorite quotes: “One man with courage makes a majority” Andrew Jackson
“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.” Maggie Thatcher
Why I joined the Citizen Watchdog Team: I love the truth! Citizen Activists need an outlet to share what they know. Waste, fraud, and abuse of the taxpayer and our dollars has always been an issue I want to fight and expose. The world is smaller now, and we can help share news with the tools we have-the internet at our fingertips, cell phones with features that boggle the mind, and with social media like facebook, free blogs all of us can be an information accelerator.
