More news on Sacramento mismanagement of state parks fundsAugust 20th, 2012 by Geoff, Executive Director
The Sacramento Bee has been investigating the millions of dollars that were set aside and covered up by Sacramento administrators of the state park system. The initial news led to the resignation of State Park Director Ruth Coleman; over the past weekend the Bee reported more details.
Official investigation reports are still pending and will reveal the full story. But with State Parks scrambling to stay open, it’s never good to read quotes like this about the administrators in question: he “fell into the trap of thinking of it as—as his own money … that money is the department’s and it needs to be spent on the department’s priorities.”
