National Gallery’s Marc Mayer Curbs Travel And Hospitality Spending

Only Denise Amyot, who was president and CEO travel of the Canada Science and Technology Museum Corp., before leaving for another job the end of May, came close. In that five-month period, Amyot racked up nearly $24,000 in travel and hospitality expenses. But Fernand Proulx, who took over as interim president and CEO after Amyots departure, only spent $1,399 over the remaining seven months of the year. Mark ONeill, president and CEO of the corporation that runs the Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian War Museum, billed $20,332 for travel and $502 for hospitality last year about $6,700 more than in 2012.

Emanuel defends taxpayer-funded travel -

which have led to better public transportation efficiency and more. By Bill Ruthhart Tribune reporter 3:41 p.m. CDT, April 21, 2014 Mayor Rahm Emanuel today wouldn't say why he spent taxpayer money on out-of-town trips in which he mixed vacation city business with politics, but defended the travel expenses as legitimate. The Tribune reported Friday that the mayor flew around the country at least 56 times during his first two and a half years in office, and on at least nine of the trips taxpayer money was spent to cover all or part of the travel as Emanuel met with political donors or raised campaign money.
