A 27-page Introduction to Local Government Ethics!
Government ethics is one of the most misunderstood topics
among local government officials and employees, government
attorneys, ethics reformers, public administration students,
journalists, and even ethics commission members.
So far, City Ethics has provided a great deal of information
about local government ethics, including seven years of blog
posts, a Model Ethics Code, and the resource book Local
Government Ethics Programs.
But this is far too much information for many people!
So here at last is a short introduction to what you need to
know about local government ethics programs. A half hour or
so is all you’ll need to have a working knowledge of the
topic. It will also help you decide what parts of City Ethics' free
resource book, Local
Government Ethics Programs, you will want
