AWOL ethics board should be removed

November 13, 2012

Let's hold Baltimore accountable ("Ethics board gone AWOL?" Nov. 12). My suggestion is that you have a citizen file a complaint to the ethics board against the ethics board director for conflict of interest and breach of duty and trust and also request the director's financial disclosure form. Then, let's see how the ethics board handles it. According to The Sun's article, any citizen can file a complaint.

Also, according to its code of regulations, Article 8, Section 3-3 (b), the mayor can remove an appointed member of the board for cause (one being neglect of duty), which is a violation of this article. I would think that not meeting for at least six years screams of dereliction of duty.
