I wanted to offer some observations about the plans announced by Councilmen Friend and O’Daniel to have Russ Lloyd appear at the City Council finance committee meeting just prior to the regular council meeting on Monday, June 9. He is allegedly going to answer questions about the 2012 SBOA audit. I think this is being done in response to our call for a Day of Accountability concerning the 2012 SBOA audit findings, although they have not acknowledged that in any way. My guess is that it is meant to be a diversionary tactic to drown out our calls for an explanation of the $29 million worth of “restatements” from the 2011 audit.
We can’t let them get away with that, so I am redoubling my call for everyone who wants an answer about where the money went to show up at the Civic Center on June 9, in Rm. 301, but we need to be there by 5:10 pm in order to hear what the City Controller has to say now that he didn’t say to the auditors when the time was at hand. Now is NOT the time for us to back down.
I can truly say that I hope I am wrong. I would like nothing better than to leave that meeting with confidence in the City’s accounting practices are solid now, when they weren’t at the time when the SBOA conducted the 2012 City audit review.
