Let's Get an Ethics ordinance in Washington Township
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
It's no secret that political corruption has plagued Macomb County in recent years and is still ongoing. Washington Township is no exception. Whether it's paying for a sexual harassment case to go away on taxpayers' dime, leaking closed door land deal information to other parties, or developing in a way that is unsustainable for the citizens, one thing is clear: A well drafted ethics ordinance should be established to provide clarity to local public officials so that they are held responsible for abuse of power. Several other townships in Michigan have already established this and have been successful in handling issues that go on at the local level. Even the Macomb Daily quoted Washington Township attorney Robert Seibert as saying that Washington Township does not have an ethics ordinance and under Michigan Township Law no action can be taken by other board members. This should concern community that local officials have a free pass to do whatever they please without any ramifications. By establishing an ethics ordinance, power will be given back to the people.
