Orlando Sanchez for Houston City Controller
Orlando Sanchez will make the Controller’s office Independent of the Mayor and City Council and shine a light on the City's finances.
Oversight for the Taxpayer
Orlando Sanchez will make the Controller’s office Independent of the Mayor and City Council. It’s important that the City Controller be free from political conflicts. Sanchez will answer to the taxpayer, not City Hall insiders.
Orlando Sanchez will conduct audits using highly qualified professionals who can make meaningful recommendations to save taxpayers money and ensure that our infrastructure money is efficiently spent.
Fraud and Abusive Spending
Orlando Sanchez will find waste and abuse in major programs to help save taxpayer money. During the tenure of the current City Controller, he has failed to independently investigate or review a single department for significant cost savings and operational efficiencies.
Orlando Sanchez will investigate all Harvey flood relief programs to find out why those most affected have been left to suffer. The Controller has completely neglected his role as public advocate during the Harvey recovery.
Shining a Light on the City’s Finances
Under his leadership as Treasurer, the Harris County Treasurer’s Office won several major governmental transparency awards including two Sunshine Review Sunny Awards for transparency and achieved Platinum Level in the Texas State Comptroller's Leadership Circle for Transparency in Local Government Reporting
