  1. Actually I believe the overtime pay was much more than noted above. I want to know first, what was so important to the City that she go to Paris, France and Athens, Greece? And why is the overtime we have paid once he became her security detail increase over 50% over that of the prior mayor? And, what does she do more than any other mayor that she has to have a security detail work so many hours?
