Mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 14 at Rancho Santiago Community College District’s main board meeting room for a sequel – CAFR Exposed, What Really Happened to the Budget? Returning for a second round will be our dynamic duo – Auditor-Controller Eric Woolery and Voice of OC Publisher Norberto Santana, who will unravel the mysteries of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (appropriately nicknamed CAFR), and how it reconciles what an Agency says it will do with your tax dollars in the beginning of the year with what they actually did.
Hold on to your hats as the intrepid pair take you on a wild ride from financial statements to the dark caverns of footnotes, supplemental information and the always-fascinating statistical section. There is no charge, so hurry and register as seats are LIMITED!
Anyone interested in following the money, holding government’s feet to the debt ceiling or otherwise making sense of government finance should sign up immediately!
