Who would YOU trust with


of YOUR tax dollars?

The City’s Chief Financial Officer is called the Comptroller and serves a 4-year term.

Deputy Comptroller Aycha Sawa has YOUR back!


Aycha is a rare, municipal finance expert. She has over a decade of experience accurately managing, analyzing and reporting the City’s fiscal activities with complete transparency. She has served as Deputy Comptroller for 3 years and has worked in progressively responsible roles in the comptroller’s office since 2010.

Aycha’s City career began as an auditor in 2010. In less than a year she was promoted to Lead Auditor, and then to Audit Manager in early 2012. As a manager, she conducted an in-depth audit risk assessment in order to gauge a multi-year audit plan that covered high and medium risk areas of the city. The division also underwent comprehensive policies and procedures improvements, bringing the department to be Yellowbook compliant.

Most recently, prior to becoming Deputy Comptroller, she served as the City’s Accounting Director, assuring the accuracy of the City’s financial statements, and implementing annually new Governmental Accounting Standards Board pronouncements.

In January of 2017, she was appointed Deputy Comptroller where she is responsible for eight (8) divisions within the Comptroller’s office and administrating all HR related activities.
