An Unintended Interpretation of Ethics Vote

By  | 

Being immersed in the Council meetings sometimes causes us to forget that not everyone sees the positions our Council has over a period of time.  Everyone who has been at recent Council meetings knows that Wayne Messina and Ralph Washington are in support of the formation of an ethics committee.  In the 3-2 vote at the last Council meeting to address the ethics issue through an open Council workshop, their "no" votes were an indication that they preferred to stay with the concept of an appointed committee and not try to accomplish this through a workshop.  I am fairly confident that they will support whatever steps forward the council makes through a workshop. has notified the Mayor and each Council Member that the 3-2 vote, while accurately reported, could be misunderstood.  This will also be printed in next Thursday's print edition of the newspaper.
