Audit of past/current Contractual assignments by City of P.A.

Original post made by the watcher, another community, on Jun 22, 2009

It would be very interesting and (possibly) explosive in content if someone did a past 10 year audit on how many friends of friends and former (retired) employees from the City of Palo Alto have been re-hired as consultants throughout the various city's departments . From what many understand is that these so-called consultants make huge salaries for minimal level work output. (What department conducts the audits for these completed work-contract?)


Seems that in these financially strapped times, all the cities financial expenditures should be viewed by the public (with no exceptions), and especially the work that is contracted out.


In the past the contratcted work budget has never been revealed to the media and the public in the same manner as has been with the current employees of the City of Palo Alto.


Is the answer "Blowin in the Wind?"
