A new policy calling for two “deep dive” special audits as part of Yorba Linda’s regular, annual financial review conducted by an outside, independent auditing firm has been implemented on a unanimous City Council vote. Targeted for the special audits are the city’s credit card policies, procedures, approvals and charges and the city’s surplus property disposal procedures, topics chosen by the city’s Finance Committee composed of Mayor Peggy Huang and Councilwoman Beth Haney.
Interesting to note during Yorba Linda’s 50th anniversary celebration: Not all of the first City Council members were enthusiastic supporters of cityhood. In fact, Herb Warren, who placed fifth for five council seats out of 27 candidates in 1967, fought incorporation and helped finance activities of a committee opposed to Yorba Linda becoming Orange County’s 25th city.
Twice each year Yorba Linda’s City Council members with open campaign committees are required by state law to file financial documents that report income, expenses and loans to their election treasuries. Usually, in a year without a ballot, these reports have few entries. But for 2017, Mayor Peggy Huang is off to an early start in an expected run for a second council term in November 2018, already collecting close to half of the dollars she spent in her 2014 win.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
