City of Compton insiders have confirmed the State Controllers office is preparing to issue a final report on the city’s finances within weeks. 2UrbanGirls has received a copy of the preliminary report and City Manager Cecil Rhambo confirmed its authenticity. Betty Yee’s office details a laundry list of issues with the city’s money, which tie to an employees ability to steal nearly $4 million of taxpayers dollars.
2UrbanGirls has reported continuously over the past four years on the city councils failure to be more transparent with the finances and establish reform in the Finance Department.
The only individual to have continuous contact with the finances, outside of the carousel of city managers and controllers, is City Treasurer Doug Sanders.
2UrbanGirls has revealed the contentius relationship between Sanders and City Manager Cecil Rhambo over who will watch cameras installed in the treasurers office.
According to the affidavit filed in the embezzlement case against ex-deputy treasurer Salvador Galvan, Sanders told investigators he is the only person authorized to accss the accounting software the city uses outside of work via a VPN network.
