These are all expenses paid or reimbursed for my activities as a Councilmember over the last year. Not noted here are many expenses I paid for out of my own pocket (non City funds) for City Council business. Those additional expenses were about $600 for my iPad, about $840 for my cell phone service and about $500 in various other travel and expenses.
