Mayor's Office expenses: January - May 2011

Post Date: Thursday, June 30, 2011

Today, we are releasing the mayor’s office expenses for January 1 to May 31, 2011. Now that we have sorted out how best to do this within our accounting system, we hope to repeat this posting of expenses regularly.

The attached document includes a budget summary as well as the details of the expenses in areas like travel, hosting, and communications.

We reduced the mayor's office budget considerably for 2011 back in November (a $140,000 cut), and I am pleased to report that we are well under-budget even from that smaller number. We have included our year-to-date budget, our year-to-date actuals, as well as what was spent in the same period in 2010.

We’ve also posted the 2010 expenses below. Keep in mind that I took office on October 25, 2010, so the vast majority of this occurred before the election. That's why it's in a different format. The apples-to-apples, if you're interested, is clearer in the above document.
