Head Start execs spend lots on trips, gifts

Susan Vinella of The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reviewed spending records from Ohio's largest Head Start agency to find "executives and board members spending tens of thousands on meals, trips and gifts. Many of the expenses were paid with government money that the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland receives for its annual budget, which tops $50 million." Trips to Puerto Rico and Hawaii were among the expenses detailed, as were gifts from Tiffany & Co. worth $1,300.
