What recession? LA Country gets 10K anonymous Gift

What recession? LA Country gets 10K anonymous Gift

Los Angeles County is $10,000 richer after an anonymous donation from someone in Washington State.

“In this time of economic difficulties, governments need all the help they can get. Please put this anonymous check to good use. God bless you.”

“We were elated that there would be such a good person out there,” said Los Angeles County’s top auditor Wendy Watanabe. “Most of the time we get attacked for overspending. For someone to actually donate to the government, it’s just unheard of.”

The check included a note that read: “In this time of economic difficulties, governments need all the help they can get. Please put this anonymous check to good use. God bless you.”

Unless the Board of Supervisors directs otherwise, Watanabe says, the money will be deposited in the county’s general fund.
