Last night, the Peralta Community College District board called for an investigation into a no-bid contract given to one of Chancellor Elihu Harris’s business partners (whose relationship to the chancellor was not disclosed beforehand). The board might also ban the use of credit cards for personal expenses.
The Alameda County community college district, however, has so far kept secret the details of the $4,000-plus in personal expenses charged to Trustee Marcie Hodge’s district credit card.
These issues, and others, were uncovered by reporters Matt Krupnick and Thomas Peele. In case you missed the stories, you can find them here.
