The Candidate for Mayor Who Cares About Your Wallet

A mayor is our full-time manager of operations and spending; he proposes how the money is spent, and signs the contracts. The same year our mayor was elected, the Dept. of Revenue told Malden to hire a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to prevent theft and waste.
Our mayor soon created and funded many new positions, including a photographer, but not a CFO. Eight years later, there have been three more thefts, yet there have been no convictions related to these thefts, including one caught in the act.
Did You Know Malden Needs a CFO But Does Not Have One? We Are Listening.

In 2019, the Inspector General wrapped-up its investigation and concluded that Malden needs a CFO. Now we’ve been told twice, and you continue to pay the price.
According to our most recent audit, “interest earned on bank deposits has not kept pace with inflation” earning “far less than 1%.” As a result, “The City generated about $150,000 in interest income during fiscal year 2018; this could easily be increased to over $500,000.” This loss is significant, especially over eight years. The buck stops with our mayor.
I will be a different kind of mayor. I will read every contract, watch every dollar, and target the type of growth that will make us proud. And I will finally appoint the much-needed CFO.
Lend me your support on November 5th and help me bring in a new era of financial responsibility in Malden.
