WASHINGTON (AP) - Former D.C. Councilmember Kathy Patterson may be returning to the District of Columbia government to serve as a watchdog.

The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/112HFY2 ) reports D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson has nominated Patterson to become the next D.C. auditor. The auditor is the official District government watchdog that reports to the council.

If confirmed, Patterson would serve at least two years. She would complete the six-year term of former Auditor Yolanda Branche, who left the post in May.

Patterson has been out of D.C. government for eight years since she lost the 2006 race for council chairman. She has more recently worked for the Pew Charitable Trusts.

Patterson says the auditor’s office could be more of a resource to the council.

A hearing on Patterson’s nomination is set for Oct. 30.
