There were no criminal misdeeds, but Galperin’s audit found that trust employees are paid $220,000. They spent more than $660,000 with their publicly financed credit cards for steak dinners and trips to Las Vegas, Hawaii and New Orleans. One employee racked up thousands of dollars in gas purchases on top of a $500 monthly car allowance.
The DWP is an agency that merits more oversight and more scrutiny, not less. But ratepayers already know that, and that's probably one reason why voters picked Galperin over Zine.
