Assemblymember Valencia issues statement on the release of the City of Anaheim’s audit

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Avelino Valencia (D-Anaheim) issued the following statement regarding the audit report on the City of Anaheim.

“The prolonged lack of oversight and accountability demonstrated by the City regarding public resources is concerning. By neglecting to ensure contractual agreements, the City allowed for bad actors to take advantage of public dollars at the expense of our residents. Additionally, the unallowable use of District Assessment Funds by Visit Anaheim and the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce to engage in legislative and political activity is a direct threat to my hometown's democracy. I encourage the City to proactively address the issues that have been brought to light by the state audit.”
