Melbourne’s most Travelled Consolidated Travel Expenses Revealed

We reveal the list of the MOST TRAVELLED Councilors and Council Staff over the last four years of John So’s rule.

Five of the top big spenders are candidates for the City Council election.

They include Gary Singer, Kevin Louey, Fiona Snedden, Brian Shanahan and Carl Jetter.

This is just the tip of the iceberg as the City Council’s Creative Accounting prevents the real cost from being disclosed. The City Council staff go to extraordinary steps to avoid disclosure and accountability including the scam of pocketing QANTAS Frequent flyer points earnt by spending Council money. They are all in on the racket and QANTAS is the master fraudster/bag man.
