$17,600 for DINNER, that’s how much Berkeley’s Janet Napolitano spent for food the night before she voted to Raise Tuition. That was BEFORE an audit found Berkeley hiding $175 million in secret funds.

The University of California has announced it will no longer pay for the meals of its governing board after a newspaper reported lavish spending on dinners.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Sunday that UC President Janet Napolitano ‘s office reimbursed regents for more than $225,000 in dinner parties since 2012, including $17,600 for a banquet held the night before the board voted to raise tuition.

UC Board of Regents Chair Monica Lozano and Napolitano said in a statement that regents will “absorb their costs for board dinners” to avoid questions over how money is spent.
The newspaper reports Monday the reversal was the idea of regent Richard Blum.
Dinner costs are paid out of a private endowment designated for university business costs not covered by state or tuition funds.
