Nobody will respond on the demise of the Ethical Public Service Act.

It has been more than a week since I reported on the demise
of the Ethical Public Service Act, link.

I subsequently sent two emails to every city councilor, asking
them for some information on the demise. As yet, no one has

I expect that, if you jumped out of a bush somewhere (the only
sure way to get face time with a politico) and asked them why
they haven't responded, they would say that they never got
the email.

Which begs at least one question; why have email addresses
posted on the city website, link, if they don't work?

Bottom line; legislation that would have raised the standard of
conduct in city government, and which would have added at
least some real accountability, has died in relative secret.

All of the time, effort, and resources that were expended in
a worthwhile effort to reform city government were wasted.

It is fair to hold
the Mayor accountable.
