Congressional Rep. Steve Knight and the Importance of Independent Oversight

Steve Knight and Lee KennedyOn March 10, 2016, AVMetrics™ was pleased to welcome Rep. Steve Knight to the offices.  The team talked to Rep. Knight about a wide range of issues, from the local economy to environmental issues.

Rep. Knight has been touring the District and meeting with constituents to develop an ever-greater understanding of the issues that his constituents face.  Lee and the team explained AVMetrics’™ core business: the independent testing of AVMs.  AVMetrics™ ‘ core philosophy is that independent testing creates an environment of integrity, and that businesses, systems, and markets with integrity do not suffer from fraud, corruption or bubbles.  AVMetrics’™ mission is to ensure integrity in the AVM market to guarantee that AVMs remain a respected and reliable tool.

Rep. Knight also discussed the recent Porter Ranch gas leak disaster, having recently testified before Congress on the subject.  The group discussed the advantages of AVMetrics’™ philosophy of independent oversight as an aspect of governmental response to prevent future disasters.

As a veteran of the U.S. Army, Rep. Knight was interested in AVMetrics’™ challenges and successes as a veteran-owned business.  AVMetrics™ has been a veteran-owned business for almost 12 years but only last year was certified as a “Veteran Owned Small Business” by the U.S. Dept of Veterans Affairs.
