Governor Wolf Requests Investigation Into the Philadelphia Parking Authority

first_imgGovernor Wolf Requests Investigation Into the Philadelphia Parking Authority Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Press Release Today, Governor Tom Wolf sent a letter to the Attorney General asking the office to investigate the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA). The Attorney General’s office has the express authority to “examine the books, accounts, and records” of the PPA. The letter of the text is posted below.Dear Attorney General Beemer,Many of us have been concerned by the management of the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA), culminating recently in the disturbing and unacceptable accounts of alleged sexual harassment and assault perpetrated by the agency’s executive director, and potentially ignored by the board.The agency remains uniquely opaque in state government. It was established without significant oversight, and it remains largely self-policed.As you are no doubt aware, state law gives the Attorney General the express authority to “examine the books, accounts and records,” of the Philadelphia Parking Authority. In light of the serious allegations of misconduct and poor oversight, I believe it would be appropriate for a thorough examination of the financial dealings and practices of the authority to be conducted as soon as possible.As stewards of the taxpayer’s resources, it is our job to make sure every office of government is delivery value honesty, efficiently, and effectively. Recent events make it clear that we cannot say with any certainty that the Philadelphia Parking Authority is living up to this standard.I look forward to reviewing the results of your investigation and making sure that the Philadelphia Parking Authority is truly accountable to the people of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.Thank you for your consideration of this request.Sincerely,Tom WolfWolf Requests Attorney General Investigation Into the PPA by Governor Tom Wolf on ScribdDownload a PDF of the letter.
