|Arguments For Measure A||Arguments Against Measure A|
|After serving as the City Treasurer for two years it is my recommendation to
the citizens of Livermore to eliminate the position of an elected treasurer.
When I was elected to the position it was my stated objective to see if the
position continued to merit an elected official. After meeting with city
staff and other California city officials, I can attest to the fact that the
position is no longer viable. Today there exist many checks and balances which
are mandated by the State of California. The City Council now has the ultimate
responsibility to ensure that the finances of our city are reported correctly
and invested wisely. Additionally, an annual audit is required and various
bond reporting agencies review the city's ability to repay their debt.
Livermore is consistently praised for the job our finance department does in
reporting our receipts and disbursements, our investment portfolio and the
Please join me, the Mayor and the City Council in following the lead of other California Cities in abolishing this elected position.
