Who picked up the tab?

EDITOR: Sonoma State University's Green Music Center marketing chief Jessica Anderson and her friends hit a few upscale bars while in New York (Chris Smith column, Thursday). Who picked up the bill? Was the trip paid for by SSU (i.e., taxpayers and students) or by donors to the Green Music Center?

SSU President Ruben Armi?na and his wife, Marne Olson, SSU Vice President Larry Schlereth and Green Music Center Director Jeff Langley also apparently had New York vacations under the guise of doing music center business, ("Sandy Weill announces Carnegie/SSU partnership," May 30).

To clarify any misunderstanding, The Press Democrat should request that Armi?na release expense account information regarding this trip.
