E-M:/ Broaden Ethics, Disclosure Laws for State and Local Officials



I know that in West Michigan the public would love to have seen the local disclosures such as the Ellenwood marina/docominium/condo corruption on White Lake at Montague, or the Fisherman's Landing land grab on Muskegon Lake by the the City Muskegon for their developer partners/employers, or all the controversy surrounding the marina/condo landuse fights in the Spring Lake Grand Haven area.  The list is endless throughout the state.

Broaden Ethics, Disclosure Laws for State and Local Officials - 4/4/03
Conflict of interest and campaign donation disclosure laws must be tougher at all evels of government
State law needs to have clear standards, from township boards to state offices, on

what constitutes a conflict of interest and how political contributions are reported.
Full and timely disclosure should also be required for local interest groups that
publish or broadcast election ads.
