Another City Controller bites the dust

City of Compton residents can’t catch a break.  It is being reported by City Hall insiders that a key employee in the finance department walked off the job today. The department now has eight vacancies.

After documents leaked detailing an audit being performed by the State of California, which highlights lack of controls in the Finance Department, allegedly fed up with outlandish requests, City Controller Nita McKay has left her position without notice.  She was on the job for nearly 10 months.

Ms. McKay gave a report to city council during the regular meeting held on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, where she details findings of an audit she conducted on the city’s American Express card.  She reported that multiple receipts and/or credit card statements were missing.

The City Treasurer and City Clerk’s office has long-handled the opening of credit card statements dating back nearly a decade ago, when City Treasurer Doug Sanders and former City Clerk Charles Davis happened to open credit card statements, that were turned over to the District Attorney’s office, to prosecute members of the Omar Bradley Administration.

    She never was he right person for the job. I caught her lying to the council and the people more than once. That’s a big problem in Compton. They never hire the right people.

      You’re correct Robert Ray.

      The right person for Controller was already in the department and moving the audits forward. The City Council set the City back 10 months by hiring Nita McKay and of course, because she wasn’t from Compton, they raised her salary before hiring her. Compton, so silly.
