Campos calls for audit of MTA bosses 

Supervisor David Campos is calling for an all-out audit of the managers who run the fiscally troubled Municipal Transportation Agency, saying a detailed review of their decision-making hasn’t been done in 14 years.

The supervisor called for the performance audit during a hearing at Wednesday’s Budget and Finance Committee regarding the transit agency’s plans to layoff workers. Campos is among the lawmakers protesting the layoffs.

Such an audit would take between six months and a year, Budget Analyst Harvey Rose said.

MTA spokesman Judson True said the agency is already heavily audited.

“We work with an enormous number of regulators and oversight,” True said. “We have all our financial books audited, we work with the FTA [Federal Transit Administration] on their review and the MTC [Metropolitan Transportation Commission].”

Nevertheless, the MTA is "always willing to work with the controller’s office, the budget analyst and the board," True said.
