I went to the city of San Gabriel early this morning to review some documents and got way more than I asked for in my public records request: a baby sitter.
For the nearly two hours I spent sifting through City Council expense reports inside some back room in City Hall, an assistant from the City Clerks office was there with me.
Apparently, its city policy that the documents be reviewed under supervision, my baby sitter said. This while rare has been seen in other cities as well, such as Baldwin Park.
I just dont understand why? Do they think Im going to try and stuff a couple of expense sheets in my purse when theyre not looking? None of the documents had any sensitive information i.e. credit card numbers or bank statements.
Oh well, I guess I should be happy I at least had someone to keep me company.
