Featuring an all-star officeholder and journalist cast!

Hey there, Fiscal Watchdogs!  Join Orange County Auditor-Controller, Eric H. Woolery, CPA and guests: Senator Josh Newman, Assemblymember Sharon Quirk Silva, and Voice of OC’s Norberto Santana as they discuss, in easy to understand terms, the roles that government and the public play in financial accountability, the differences between state and local agencies, how taxpayer dollars are spent and how members of the public can serve as Taxpayer Watchdogs. The panel will be answering questions from the audience and providing information for those interested in becoming Taxpayer Watchdogs.  It’s taking place at Cal State Fullerton’s Steven G. Mihaylo Hall, Room 1502.

OJ Blog will try to be on hand to take photos of our readers with their favorite officeholders, presuming that you can successfully sneak up on them!  Seriously, this looks to be worthwhile — and it’s just really nice that it’s happening at all!

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose worker's rights and government accountability attorney, residing in northwest Brea. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Occasionally runs for office to challenge some nasty incumbent who would otherwise run unopposed. (Someday he might pick a fight with the intent to win rather than just dent someone. You'll know it when you see it.) He got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012 and in 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. A family member co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
