Your tax dollars at work quiz of the day

Monday, July 9, 2012

Which San Francisco school board member spent thousands of dollars of taxpayer money last school year on meals, cab fare and personal items even as the district cut days from its calendar and schools were forced to fund-raise for basic supplies?
 Kim-Shree Maufas, to the tune of more than $8000, the Chronicle finds. An excerpt:
Maufas declined to address the spending disparity or several questionable purchases identified by The Chronicle. But she said she stands by all her expenses, adding that all expenditures were relevant to her role as an elected official.
Maufas' expenditures included a $114 aluminum keyboard case and a $108 protective screen for a district on-loan iPad, as well as a $264 iPhone.
Her Diners Club credit card statement from May showed an additional $1,610.84 in charges, although they have yet to be approved by the district accounting staff.
