In Support of CPAs

BY JONAH N. MANNING

I am a financial representative in Florida. My thoughts on the Arthur Andersen case, and I believe I speak for my colleagues as well, are that it was a solitary incident and that accountants should not be grouped into a category known for unethical conduct.

I believe accountants are as important to us as doctors. Without financial help, many of us, even in other financial service categories, would be up the creek without a boat, much less a paddle.

I hope you will publish this letter so that accountants all across the country will know there are still professionals who recognize the CPAs’ integrity and kindness.
