Another reader FOIA’d some actual credit card statements. More on that in a minute.
Guess what $2,618.88 to Sodexo is?
They threw themselves a party!
In 2015 the operating loss was $9,939,281.30 – – and they WON system of the year!

Back to travel . . .
See the Credit Card statements here – I don’t suggest looking on a full stomach: visa-statements-10-15-to-10-16
I could pick out a number of items, but let’s look at the trip to San Fransisco and who went:
It only cost taxpayers a little over $7,700!
Why did FIVE employees have to go?

Anybody think the State of Illinois should pay them?
Anybody think the Board should all resign?
