The chairwoman of the Charlottesville Electoral Board blew the whistle on a onetime colleague who had taxpayers paying for a cellphone long after her term ended. Joannie Schatzman (pictured left) has told the Daily Progress she was upset that Stephanie Commander (pictured right) rang up $2530 in charges and still had a city-owned phone earlier this year.
