Support the City of Okland Public Ethics Commission

Here is the application form for the open Public Ethics commissioner position. The application deadline is Nov. 18. If you or anyone you know (neighbor, church member, etc.) would be interested please consider it ASAP.

And here is a link to the City website with the description and contents of the Government Ethics Act that is coming to City Council next Tuesday evening Nov. 18 (it is item #16 on the non-consent Agenda). This is the result of combined drafting efforts from the PEC, Dan Kalb's Ethics and Good Government working group, the city attorney and the city auditor, and it has strong support from LWVO's Action committee. Come to the Council meeting in support.
