For one, Councilmember Sue Chan and Mayor Bob Wasserman reported no gifts. Last year, the mayor got truffles, champagne – even a scanner.
On Aug 30, Councilmembers Bob Wieckowski and Bill Harrison went to an A’s game courtesy of Assemblyman Alberto Torrico. The triumvirate must have been good luck. The A’s won late 3-2. I wonder if they stayed till the end.
On Nov. 21, Wieckowski and Harrison were guests of KB Homes at a Warriors game. The home team lost that one.
As for Harrison, he also reported $250 from SMG (a company that manages arenas) for Disney on Ice tickets in both March and October; $150 from the Chamber of Commerce for wine garden tickets; and $250 from Malcolm Pirnie Inc., and environmental engineering consulting firm that has done business with the water district.
Moving along …
Anu Natarajan reported a gift from the Chamber of Commerce for its wine tent at the Fremont Festival of the Arts; $50 for the Festival of India Banquet; $60 for the FSNC(?) Banquet and $60 for two tickets to the Nutcracker from the Fremont Symphony, which was begging for money last year.
Bob Wieckowski: $200 bike rental from the Bicycle Garage, $160 for a Bay East Association of Realtors reception, $250 from Flash Electronics for, from what I can gather, Chinese Art Education; $75 for a NUMMI reception; $300 worth of needlepoint art from his big city-sponsored trip to China, and $80 Warrior tickets from Fox Sports Network.
