Wednesday, May 7, 2008 | The mayor’s Charter Review Committee voted 6 to 7 in favor of the mayor hiring the independent auditor. Six felt that independent meant independent.

Will the independent auditor be beholden to the mayor if he/she is hired by the mayor? You bet. Is there a perception of impropriety? Guess. Why would the mayor want to hire the IA? It looks bad.

The new audit committee will have six members and report to the council. It would be pretty hard to stack the deck with that many people involved in the decision. I commend all who are against Proposition C and See it for what it really is. Another chance to manipulate the figures.
