Talking reform with City Controller Ron Galperin and the Reason Foundation

Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin will share his thoughts on structural reform for the City government. A champion of transparency, Galperin has a growing list of 500 audits in the works and has prioritized making data on payroll, expenditures and revenue more accessible to the public.

Building on this, Leonard Gilroy, director of government reform at the Reason Foundation, will also present the Foundation's research on privatization and local government reform. Gilroy has a diversified background in policy research and implementation, with particular emphases on public-private partnerships, competition, government efficiency, transparency, accountability and government performance.

Reforming the structure of government and privatization are two of the 15 areas this council is assessing in our exploration of charter amendments for the City of L.A.
