CID funds spent by Supervisors during the last 6 months.Reply: Michelle Randall
I was so astonished by the sheer amount of CID money that Jeffries has handed out recently, that I went back through the last six months of Board of Supervisor's agendas and did a tally of CID money spent by all Supervisors. This is not money spent from EDA accounts, but money spent by "General Fund Ammendments" (That's our tax money, folks).  Jeffries, who railed against Supervisor Busters CID charitable support, leads the pack, with some of his giveaways buying lunches for committees he serves on.  What a hipocrite! No small wonder this collection of Bozos struggle with the budget. 
Jeffries                       $401,946.23                       

Tavaglione                    $331,652.39

Ashley                           $157163.33

Benoit                            $119,820.00

Stone                              $ 79,904.00

                  Total            $1,090,485.00

"A civil grand jury report criticized some supervisors for using the grants for political self-promotion."

"In the final months of 2012, as he was about to leave office, Riverside County Supervisor Bob Buster doled out more than a million dollars in taxpayer-funded grants to causes in his west county district — often outside the scrutiny of the public eye."
