Ethics Training for City Officials Thursday August 27 6PM

logo Latest in a series of posts on City Government logo

City Council is required to go through ethics training every two years, if Gadfly understands correctly.

The Mayor and department heads will attend as well.

Would be good for anybody contemplating running for office. Campaign season for mayor and other offices begins in a short 4-5 months or so.

The public is invited.  Gadfly is curious and plans to attend. See the document at the bottom of the page for an idea of the content of the meeting.

One thought on “Ethics Training for City Officials Thursday August 27 6PM

  1. Remember, City Council declined to adopt a more-meaningful ethics ordinance just a few years ago, although it was based on and comparable to those adopted by Easton and other PA cities.

    Council preferred to stick with the statewide ethics statute, which is much less strict.
