The Private Cost of outing Waste, Fraud and Abuse
Dear Mr. Johnson:
We received your request for public records email dated February 2, 2013, wherein you requested records of CD 14's CLARTS Fund.
Regarding item one of your request, please see the attached balance sheet for the CLARTS fund.
As for items two and three of your request, we may need to write a program to extract data relative to your request. Please be advised, pursuant to California Government Code 6253.9(b), “the requester shall bear the cost of producing a copy of the record, including the cost to construct a record, and the cost of programming”.We expect to make a cost determination on or before February 26, 2013; we will notify you at that time.
If you have any questions, please contact me. -- Donna Williams Executive Administrative AssistantOffice of the Los Angeles City Controller200 N. Main Street, Suite 300Los Angeles, CA 90012 (213) 978-7243 ph.( 213) 978-7211 fx.
Simply, the process of ascertaining the status of the CLARTS Fund is nothing new to the Villar Greuel. During a visit to the Boyle Height Neighborhood Council some three plus years ago, the current City Controller in addition to letting all city employees present know that she signs their paychecks, lamented old computers and software as her reason for not providing quick data on the status of the CLARTS Fund.
But as highlighted by Randy Economy and the Los Cerritos News Group, the Villar Greuel spent more work time entertaining campaign contributors than working to overhaul her supposed antiquated data processing systems.
Thus Villar Greuel, why waste my time (and money) in offsetting the wasted efforts in covering up the fraud, that is your mismanagement of the CD 14 CLARTS Fund?
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14.
