La Femme Wonkita Is Back!
Costa Mesa City Councilwoman, and former mayor, Sandra Genis has resurrected her personal blog, La Femme Wonkita, after a more than two-year hibernation and is back with a vengeance!
ASSESSING THE CAFR
Her re-launch effort, HERE, is titled, "Material Weaknesses" in Accounting?, and deals with the recently-released Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) that reports the city's financial status as of June 30, 2013. Yes, it DOES take that long for this document to be produced.
READ HER WORK
I won't steal her thunder - go to her site and read what an intelligent, experienced, detail-oriented public servant thinks on this issue. Here's a little tease.... she quotes a segment of the report that says, "a structured ethics policy establishes organizational standards for ethics, morals, and an overall 'regard for the rules' … within an entity." You get the idea...
HOLDING THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE
I'm very glad Sandy Genis is back on the council and is taking the time to research issues and challenge the attempts by the council majority to run roughshod over city government. Makes me smile when I think about it.
Welcome back, La Femme Wonkita...
