4 school officials in Sacramento area face sanctions for not disclosing gifts

Four Sacramento-area school officials received free meals from bond advisers and failed to disclose them, according to an investigation into unreported gifts. The Sacramento Bee says the California Fair Political Practices Commission is recommending penalties for 86 public officials statewide who are accused of accepting but failing to report gifts within the last four years. The four Sacramento-area officials facing penalties are Sacramento City Unified School District trustee Diana Rodriguez ($400); former Sacramento City Unified School District trustee Roy Grimes, ($200); Brian Rivas, vice president of the Sacramento County Board of Education ($200); and former Roseville City School District board member Rene Aguilera ($200).
