Some people read my last post and essentially said, WTF? Why not share the expense account info for all 50 aldermen?
OK, fair enough. Here's the full list of every expense submitted by each aldermanic office in 2007. You'll notice that not all of the information is self-explanatory--some items aren't labeled fully or at all, while others are listed as "miscellaneous," with more detailed information only available in the form of paper receipts. (Channel 32 has done some great digging to find out more.)
But in lots of instances--most?--it's clear where the money was spent but not why.
** UPDATE: Please note that for wards 2, 3, 7, 15, 16, 20, 24, 32, and 42, the first six months of expenses were incurred by the previous aldermen, not those first elected last year.
