(San Diego) - The San Diego County Taxpayers Association (SDCTA) today announced the finalists for its annual Golden Fleece Awards categories including Metro and Regional Fleeces, and a new Fleece category titled “Repeat Offenders.”

Golden Fleeces are given to government programs/services that exemplify the wasteful, inefficient or downright absurd use of taxpayer dollars.

The recipients of these dubious awards will be “honored” along with the winners of the Golden and Media Watchdog, Public-Private Partnership, and “It’s About Time” awards at SDCTA’s annual dinner at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center in Mission Valley on Thursday, May 19.

The Metro Golden Fleece finalists are:
  • Centre City Development Corporation – A Losing Game of Bridge
  • Cities of Oceanside and Chula Vista – Playing the Pension Shell Game
  • City of Poway –Water Policy Rolling Downhill
  • San Diego City Employees’ Retirement System Board – Generous to a Fault
The Regional Golden Fleece finalists are:
  • County of San Diego – SAFE Cracking
  • San Diego Unified School District – Aloha to Taxpayers’ Money
  • Southwestern College – Is There a Manager in the House?
  • Sweetwater Union High School District – Let The Taxpayers Eat Wedding Cake
The Repeat Offenders finalists are:
  • City of Carlsbad – Tripping Up with a Triple Bogey
  • City of Chula Vista – Return of the Taxasaurus
  • Tri-City Hospital District – The “All My Children” of Hospital Districts
Now in its 16th year, the Golden Watchdog & Golden Fleece Awards Dinner gives the public an opportunity to voice compliments and criticism of government spending through nomination of programs that highlight the smart and not-so-smart decisions of the past year. SDCTA receives dozens of nominations from individuals and organizations throughout San Diego County.
