18th Annual Goldens
Thursday, May 9, 2013
San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina
333 West Harbor Drive, San Diego CA 92101
Every year SDCTA hosts the The Goldens, previously the Golden Watchdog & Fleece Awards Dinner. Loved by some, loathed by others, these awards recognize the best and worst of local government efficiency, spending and decision-making of the past year.The annual Goldens give the public a singular opportunity to voice their appreciation and disapproval of government spending practices by nominating programs that highlight good, bad and ugly fiscal decisions.
The coveted Golden Watchdog Award honors good government practices and efficient use of public money. The dreaded Golden Fleece Award calls out wasteful, inefficient uses of taxpayer dollars. The Media Watchdog Award recognizes excellence in reporting on behalf of taxpayers. The Public-Private Partnership Award honors cooperation between the public and private sectors, stretching taxpayer dollars.
Now in its 18th year, the 2013 Goldens are slated to be bigger and better than ever. With no shortage of worthy nominations, this year’s event is sure to entertain, while bringing attention to important taxpayer issues. Always the talk of the town, this is one party you don’t want to miss!
