Former Philadelphia councilman Bill Green spent $1,124 of his campaign dollars on Uber in 2012. The on-demand car service accounted for less than one percent of the $84,395 he spent in 2012 on campaign-related activities, according to data from AxisPhilly. (The new chair of the School Reform Commission is also an Airbnb supporter.) Council President Darrell Clarke also used the service, spending $223 on it in 2012.
