Another opportunity to explain what the problem is, lost:
Those reforms included restrictions on business travel expenses and credit card use and prohibited the purchase of alcohol and tobacco.
In its report, the state concluded that the reforms were insufficient and criticized the board for only moving to correct lapses after it was under pressure from the county executive to do so.
Sigh. A few expensive dinners and presumably kick-ass cigars are not the problem, nor are they the major prescriptions in the original Authorities Budget Office report. There is no accountability and instead of appointing someone nominally independent, Brooks chose to install someone who was part of the problem from the beginning.
