Councillor Brennan Owes Taxpayers $1383.00 ?


Tamara Cunningham reports in the Nanaimo Bulletin that Councillor Diane Brennan has exceeded her annual expense budget by nearly $1400.00.

According to a report released by the city Councillor Brennan expended nearly $8,000.00 on legal fees bringing her year to date expenses to $12,883.00. This exceeds her annual budget of $11.500.00 by $1383.00 which arguably should be paid by the Councillor.

Fees related to ongoing battle with city manager?

Brennan and McKay were the only members of council to run up legal fees during the second quarter of this year which begs the question of why?

The running gun battle between Brennan and McKay and Samra could be the reason for Brennan's astounding legal bill. In the Bulletin article Brennan is shedding no light on the reason for the legal bill which leaves the door wide open for speculation.

It will be interesting to see if there is any mechanism to hold Brennan responsible for the nearly $1400.00 or will the taxpayer once again have to pick up the tab. It's easy to run up legal bills when you aren't picking up the tab!
