March 21, 2014

A pair of Starkville aldermen have racked up a combined $17,970.04 in taxpayer-funded travel since the new board took office on July 1, according to records Starkville Daily News obtained from the city.

First-term Ward 2 Alderman Lisa Wynn has logged $8,997.72 in travel expenses paid from city funds, leading all city officials — elected and non-elected — since July 1. Second-term Ward 7 Alderman Henry Vaughn ranks a close second in that timeframe, logging $8,972.52 in city-paid travel expenses.

Through an open records request, SDN obtained the dollar amounts for the 15 Starkville officials who have spent the most taxpayer money on travel since July 1. The newspaper has also requested travel expense information from Oktibbeha County.
