Isn't the current City Manager a product of the People's Republic of Berkeley, also?
Got to wonder just how hard the City looked for a new auditor. The last one wasn't much in the way of delivering anything of value--got to wonder if the bar for non-performance has been set?
The position of Auditor could be one of the most important in the City's check-and-balance scheme. It's hard to see that that point-of-view has been prevalent in the last few auditor selections.
Wonder how long this one will last?
A couple of auditors I remember also served as PR flacks. They told us how wonderful Palo Alto is.
Mr Keene selects people who will obey, and admire is leadership. We'll see if this new auditor does it too.
The City Auditor isn't hired by and doesn't report to Keene (although I'm sure Keene would prefer it that way). He/she reports to the Council. If you actually read through the long and boring audit reports, you would see that the auditor's office has reported on a lot of problems in the City. You have to think beyond the report to the root of the problems and also look behind the spin that Keene and his lackeys put on the issues identified in the reports. How many times will the council accept "limited resources" as an excuse for waste and abuse in the city.
People's Republic of Berkeley? PR flacks? Lackeys? Keep 'em coming guys.
