One response to “MUN President claims over $76K in expenses”

  1. MUN cannot afford and most certainly does not need a president who abuses her “carte blanche” MUN credit card spending. A huge salary increase and now this! This president is doing anything but “leading by example!” Its time to print her severance Cheque!
