  • As quickly as the City of Gainesville goes through their accountants and auditors I hope they don’t unpack their bags.

    That leads one to wonder just how “creative” an accountant has to be to gain employment with the CoG.

  • How do you refine internals proccesses that don’ exist evidently? Can they bring us up to speed on the State Audit that is way over mental capacity of King Poe and his minion commie commisioners?

  • City of Gainesville- Please allow these women to do their jobs. Do not get upset when they uncover years of ineptitude, throw a tantrum and make them your scapegoat. Thank you.
