What else is new?
Filing papers is the only thing Greuel has done as City Controller.
She still hasn’t grasped that submitting audit reports amounts to nothing when neither she nor the mayor and City Council follow up on documented operational problems within the city.
For Greuel, the Office of Controller is nothing more than an occasional fifteen minutes of fame in the media to promote her political aspirations. She spins her reports to appear as if they actually produce efficiencies when they only deal with peripheral issues.
The City Controller must be the leader when it comes to the finances of the city. Instead, she merely rubber stamps the actions of a fiscally challenged government instead of injecting discipline into the budget process and labor negotiations.
But to Greuel, that’s not her job, because it might alienate friends in City Hall essential to her designs for the top spot.
I’m sure Brain D’Arcy is oiling his IBEW campaign contribution machine in hopes of getting his Manchurian Candidate elected.
