Default 4 Irwindale City Officials Accused of Having Fun on City Dime

Quote:
Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Four Irwindale, California, city officials are facing charges for allegedly attending Broadway shows and baseball games while in New York on city business, the Los Angeles district attorney's office said Wednesday.

Those charged include Irwindale City Council member Mark Breceda, 50, along with retired City Manager Steve Blancarte, 56; Finance Drector Abe De Dios, 65; and former Councilwoman Rosemary Ramirez, 49, according to Nipa Cook, deputy district attorney with the office's public integrity division. All four are charged with misappropriation of public funds, prosecutors said.

I appreciate the scrutiny being paid to this sort of thing. Public tax money should be seen as sacred and they are entrusted to be stewards over it and that's exactly the attitude they should have when it comes to the money we give them to run our government.

Its ridiculous that they could find $14,000 for frivilous expenses when Im sure Irwindale like everywhere else, has made drastic cuts to other things just to stay afloat!
