STATEMENT FROM CONTROLLER-ELECT REBECCA RHYNHART ON RESULTS OF AUDITOR GENERAL’S PARKING AUTHORITY AUDIT

Philadelphia, PA – "The Auditor General’s findings show gross mismanagement, a complete lack of oversight by the Board, ongoing unchecked sexual harassment, and a loss of tens of millions of dollars that were meant to go to the School District. This is not acceptable for the residents of our city and, as such, I agree with Auditor General DePasquale's assessment that the Parking Authority should return to local control. Furthermore, due to the magnitude of mismanagement under the current board’s watch, I believe all members of the PPA Board of Directors should resign. I applaud the Auditor General for initiating this much-needed audit, and plan to ensure that real change occurs at the Parking Authority when I assume office in January.”
