SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – 22News has an update on a state audit of a Springfield non-profit CEO. Herbie Flores is confident that issues regarding improper documentation of his use of state funds will soon be resolved.
Flores’ attorney Bill Bennett has submitted financial reports to the auditor’s office, after a report released a few weeks ago found that the New England Farm Workers’ Council did not properly document expenses paid for by the state.
Flores told 22News, “They come out, they review, we give them everything else, and there’s no issue of fraud, abuse, nothing. I want to make one thing clear, I do not owe the Commonwealth of Massachusetts anything, zero. I don’t owe them any money.”
The auditor’s office is still reviewing the financial records submitted by Attorney Bennett.
