The City Recorder of Deeds office has had thirteen business days to produce copies of thirteen checks from the Recorder’s Technology and Preservation Fund. It’s been seven business days since the City Counselor’s office got involved. Still nothing.
I had to send a second letter because Carpenter claimed she didn’t get the first. She said it didn’t matter because the car was a special benefit and she didn’t have to keep a mileage log. In 2010, she agreed with State Auditor Susan Montee to keep a mileage log.
I am not blaming newly appointed Recorder Florida. She was just sworn into office.
I do find it suspicious, however, that the City Counselor’s office got involved in Sunshine requests of this type.
The mileage log is of interest because of the mileage Carpenter turned in to the Comptroller for IRS purposes in 2010-2013.
In 2013, Carpenter estimated 3,380 miles for commuting to and from work:
3,380 miles ÷ 20 miles round trip = 169 work day round trips
169 work days ÷ 52 weeks = 3 days a week
Is there anyone who believes Sharon Carpenter came to her City Hall office an average of 3 days per week last year?
