The interim 2013 city councillor expenditures report has been released. As usual, Frances Nunziata spends almost nothing. Her total office expenses for the first half of the year were $1013, a figure that does not include salaries. That’s down from last year, when she spent $6040 for the entire 12 months. The median for all councillors was about $23,000.
It’s not possible to make a direct comparison, but MP Mike Sullivan’s expenses are also online. In 2012, he spent $353,000 on office expenditures, a figure that does include salaries. The mean for all MPs is $394,000.
Shockingly, Queen’s Park does not seem to release individual budgets. I can’t find Laura Albanese’s office budget anywhere.
