Dunn also responds that Arriola has financial management issues. A recent city audit criticized the manager's administration for distributing $39 million in no-bid capital improvement contracts to vendors represented by Arriola and Diaz's lobbyist friend Steve Marin. "Who is he to speak about me when he gave away no-bid, free-for-all contracts to his friends and cronies?" Dunn says. "Arriola and the mayor are political gangsters. Johnny Winton too."
