ORANGE COUNTY–Following the heels of State Senator John Moorlach’s (R-Costa Mesa) release this Friday morning exposing Caltrans executives for planning to tee off on the taxpayers’ dime, Caltrans has decided to not participate in a golf tournament at a posh Dove Canyon Country Club in Orange County on Monday.
“Maybe Caltrans is beginning to get the message,” Senator Moorlach said. “We simply cannot ask Californians to pay more for road repairs when the agency managing the process is trivializing their authority. The employee mismanagement, waste and fraud of Caltrans must be addressed.”
The State Auditor released its report detailing Caltrans employee mismanagement on August 27. Caltrans employees were golfing 55 days on-the-clock, according to the report.
“Caltrans needs immediate reform,” continued Senator Moorlach. “The situation is so bad that we need to take the step of bringing in a outside management team that will clean house and set this agency right.”
The senator says executives should spend Monday implementing reforms at Caltrans.
