RACHELL LEANN SAYS:

Hope he enjoys no license for a year, OH and 75 years of DUI on his record. And a minimum of 6 months probation. OH and DUI school and counseling, victim impact panel, a couple grand for pointless fines and fees. He needs to be treated like the rest of us in Cape Coral.

LEE COMMISSION AUDIT-SS


THIS GRAPH SHOWS HOW MUCH MONEY EACH COMMISSIONER SPENT ON OUT-OF-COUNTY TRAVEL.

TAMMY HALL TOPS THE LIST BY A *LARGE* MARGIN.

SPENDING 30-THOUSAND DOLLARS DURING A 3-YEAR SPAN.

YOU CAN SEE COMMISSIONERS FROM THE OTHER DISTRICTS SPENT CONSIDERABLY LESS.

HALLS' EXPENSES INCLUDED TRIPS TO COLOMBIA, CHILE, AND PUERTO RICO.

SINCE COMMISSIONERS ARE THE HIGHEST AUTHORITY IN THE COUNTY, THEY APPROVE THEIR OWN TRAVEL.

GET THIS - FROM 2011 TO 2012 - FORMER COMMISSIONER RAY JUDAH RECEIVED NEARLY 12-THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR LOCAL TRAVEL.

THAT'S' MORE THAN THE OTHER FOUR COMMISIONERS *COMBINED.*

JUDAH ACTED WITHIN FLORIDA LAW.

HE OPTED FOR A FIXED MONTHLY TRAVEL ALLOWANCE--

THOUGH HE FAILED TO PROVIDE A DETAILED LIST OF DESTINATIONS AND DISTANCES.

THAT'S SOMETHING AUDITORS POINTED OUT AS A RECOMMENDATION TO CHECK TRAVEL CLAIMS. Return to index of stories...
