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.
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
