Greuel vows to fight audit ruling

July 02, 2009|David Zahniser

Newly inaugurated City Controller Wendy Greuel made clear Wednesday that she is not going to be stymied by a recent judge's ruling that blocks her office from auditing programs run by her fellow elected officials: the mayor, city attorney and 15 council members.

In her inaugural address, Greuel said she was prepared to challenge that decision, going to the electorate with a ballot measure if need be to secure such expansive powers.

That may take a little while. Greuel's next shot might not come until 2010, the next regularly scheduled statewide election.
