Skipping Thursday’s Ontario-Montclair School District board meeting, under the theory (apparently borne out) that nothing could top the last meeting, I instead turned for a topic to our friends on the Pomona City Council.
Some weeks back, in a burst of journalistic enthusiasm, I requested and received copies of council members’ expense reports. I sweated over a hot calculator to make sense of them. Then it became clear that cell phone use was counted separately. I went back and added up all those charges. I wasn’t sure what to do with the results. Then I had a good idea what to do but couldn’t find a free column in which to present it. Hence, skipping the OMSD meeting.
At last, the results will be presented to you, the reading public. My editor says the effort was worth it. Decide for yourself on Sunday.
