A reader supplies this tidbit about Brian D’Arcy’s attitude toward public scrutiny that turned up in the PA Consulting charter-mandated IEA study of DWP operations and programs over the last five years — a report that General Manager David Nahai has refused to show any interest in.
In Appendix A of the DWP IEA study there is a list of 72 individuals that were interviewed by the PA consultants in preparing their report. Some Individuals were interviewed more than once.
Included on the list is David Nahai; all the LADWP Commissioners; all
the Directors of every DWP Department; Julie Butcher of the
SEIU; Richard Slawson, Labor Union leader with the Building and
Contractors Union. Just about everyone within DWP that has leadership
responsibility except for one individual: Brian D’Arcy.
Check out this footnote on page 4-185 of the DWP IEA study.
“Despite our best efforts we have been unable to interview Brian
D’Arcy, the Business Manager of the International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers -Local 18.”
