Local Government Ethics Programs in a Nutshell
Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013
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 to read.
City Ethics is making this introduction available, at no cost, in multiple formats, so that it can be read on a computer, e-reader, tablet, or cellphone.
Select your preferred format from the images below. Right click the HTML format to open the book on a webpage in a separate tab or window. Or, to download the book, left click on one of the other formats. Save the file and then copy it to your e-reader, tablet, phone, or computer, and begin reading.
The .mobi format is for the Kindle, and the ePub format works on the Nook, the Sony Reader, and iBooks.
In addition to providing information, City Ethics is available for consulting about the creation, reform, and implementation of government ethics programs, including ethics training and external ethics advice. Contact Carla Miller at [email protected]
