BREAKING NEWS: Caltrans Abruptly Backs Out of Golf Tournament After Being Exposed for Golfing on Taxpayers’ Dime
Caltrans Execs Will Make Monday All Work, No Play
(Orange County, CA) – Today, following the heels of Senator Moorlach’s release this morning exposing Caltrans executives for planning to tee off on the taxpayers’ dime, Caltrans has decided to not participate in a golf tournament at Dove Canyon Country Club in Orange County on Monday, August 31.
“Maybe Caltrans is beginning to get the message,” said State Senator John Moorlach. “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.”
“I hope executives spend Monday stepping up their game by implementing reforms at Caltrans,” concluded Senator Moorlach.
