The treasurer's reports were prepared, completed, reviewed, and read by someone else.City Treasurer Carmine Bilotto denied any new hiring, saying new positions were filled by people already on staff and only their titles changed.
First of all, there were many new hires so I don't know what tree Bilotto has been sleeping under. But more hilarious is watching Bilotto act so shocked about the financial problems when he was mostly responsible for it. He was City TREASURER for the past 4 years when all of this went down! CITY TREASURER! And Vargas was Mayor Pro Tem! But they knew nothing? Give me a break!
Vargas was unaware.
