Rob Wilcox announced on June 2 that he is running for Los Angeles city controller. Wilcox has spent decades of his life in public service fighting for government accountability in consequential city of Los Angeles and state of California positions, including serving as deputy city controller and chief deputy inspector general for Laura Chick and director of community engagement and outreach for L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer.
“I have dedicated the better part of my career to making a difference in service to the public and working with some of our most effective leaders,” Wilcox said. “Now, at this pivotal moment in our city’s history I am ready to seek a new role and a position which is one of the most consequential in L.A. city government.”
“Year after year, we witness our hard-earned tax dollars wasted on a system that doesn’t center our priorities or reflect our values,” Wilcox added. “L.A. city government moves ahead with politics as usual despite the fact that we’re seeing over 40,000 people experiencing homelessness on our streets on any given night. We’re assured that our money is being spent wisely despite the fact that the city wastes millions of dollars on nonstop payouts for gross police misconduct that taxpayers are footing the bill for.”
Wilcox said he will be ready on day one with his experience as deputy controller for Chick, who has endorsed his campaign and will be serving as co-chair.
“Rob Wilcox was my right hand when I was city controller. He knows how the controller can effect major changes in the way our government operates, rooting out corruption and stupid spending,” Chick said. “I am thrilled for the people of L.A. that Rob has chosen to run. He is a gutsy truth teller who will open up the city’s books to the light of day and public scrutiny.”
As part of his platform, Wilcox promises to “use every tool at my disposal to meaningfully address our homelessness humanitarian crisis; offer creative solutions on reforming our current system of policing; actively search for and expose City Hall corruption; combat climate change; and work steadfastly to strengthen existing small businesses, while cutting through the bureaucracy to attract new ones.”
