WTOP: Mont. Co. school board members' credit card use called into question

...There was the restaurant meal at Fager's Island during a conference in Ocean City. The final tab, which included orders of the surf and turf, lobster tail and sea bass, was $509.
In another eyebrow-raising charge, a round trip taxi fare to St. Mary's County cost $457. The board member, Judy Docca, cannot drive for health reasons, so she takes taxis to meetings, ABC7 reports. 
Other purchases have been called "accidental," with school district credit cards covering personal expenses. 
One of those, by Board member Roland Ikheloa, was a $581.87 purchase at a tire shop. He later repaid the school district. 
Board member Chris Barclay told ABC7 his 14 unauthorized purchases with the school credit card were accidents. 
The newly-released documents reveal some lavish indulgences, even while some teachers take it upon themselves to supply their classroom needs...


  1. Expenses that were incidental
    Were deemed just accidental
    They put the pedal to the metal
    In spending mode experimental.

  2. Was the $500 purchase of two leather tote bags an accident too? Or was it on purpose?

  3. Probably miscellaneous expenses that are considered perks for the privileged few.
