Lawless officials

Recently a lawyer the city hired unilaterally dismissed ethics complaints against the city attorney, the mayor, and some city representatives.

We still don’t see a provision in the ethics ordinance that gives him the power to do that.

His stated reason is that some of the actions are probably criminal in nature and that action should be left up to prosecutors.

Past history shows us that our district attorney does not pursue cases against local officials very often.

Now what?

Does that leave us in a position where our local elected officials can violate laws with impunity?

How do we stop these people?

We deserve better

    Would rather have a passive district attorney, versus an activist prosecutor who indicts people without adequate evidence.

    Why, when the city has a Legal Department full of legal eagles, is it necessary to hire an ‘outside’ lawyer every time they have a legal question? If they can’t do lawyer tasks, then they don’t need to draw a fat salary for doing nothing but warming a chair.
