Stephen Shelley's wife worked for Steve Shiver at one time. He put her in his will without her knowledge and now was trying to negate Shelley's vote against the project based on the will he produced last minute -- bad government at its best. Why was this left out of your opinion so the public would know there was a form of extortion going on?
Joe once in a while, you could advise on the side of caution, never huh? What is wrong with... "it might be technically legal but it looks like shit because X Y Z". That is why you are known as "Let Them Go Joe." You also could look at the personalities involved. This is ethics not Rundle's office. It is a lower threshold.
I call him 'go by the book Joe.'
We need to partner with the universities and get an ethics code that makes sense. MAJOR OVER-HAUL NEEDED. Daniella Levine Cava's sister in law in involved in Ethics at the University of Miami. The County ethics department stinks to the high heavens the way it is designed. All it does is offer cover for bad behavior...i.e. "it's okay he is my brother not my son." Please let's address this, this year with our new Commissioner who ran on ethics. Let's get a better code we all can believe in. The secret discussions at the ethics meetings don't help. I was glad to talk to Councilman Shelley to hear what is really going on. And that really stinks. Because I know the two men involved, I think a new ethics complaint should be filed with the intent part of the equation.
