As City Controller, her office serves as an independent financial watchdog and chief auditor for the City of Philadelphia.

She has sought to restore the public’s trust in government by rooting out fraud and mismanagement and identifying opportunities to improve the city’s financial status. Under her leadership, the Controller’s office has brought accountability and transparency on issues ranging from city finances, procurement practices, and assessment of the impacts of gun violence. Controller Rhynhart also places significant emphasis on racial equity in her work.
