Assuming you can learn a lot from the mistakes made in local government
ethics matters in cities and towns other than your own, there is a
great deal to learn from a simple ethics matter that, through a number
of mistakes, oversights and, apparently, partisanship has been turned
into a big issue in the city of Torrington
(CT; pop. 36,000). There's also a lesson to be learned about the
confidentiality of ethics commission decisions.
