Councilman Outling Violated Ethics Laws

From Outling fails to reveal conflicts in violation of state-mandated ethics policy by Roch Smith jr.

"The state-mandated city council ethics policy demands that council members reveal when they have a conflict of interest on a matter that comes before them, that they do so on the public record, describe “all such material facts” and recuse themselves. Failure to do so is “malfeasance in office” and the offender is to “forfeit his office or position.” City council member Justin Outling twice recused himself from council votes at a recent meeting without saying why as is required by the city’s ethics policy. Instead, he used his time to blame his lack of an ethical compass on the city attorney."

Yet another reason to write-in Billy Jones for Mayor of Greensboro.
