Valley Perspective

Questionable Ethics

February 25, 2001

As a longtime [San Fernando] Valley community activist, it appears to me that Times writer Patrick McGreevy has focused public attention on highly questionable ethical practices of several Valley City Council members ("Some Who Lobby Politicians Also Run Their Campaigns," Feb. 11).

Over the past 30 years, I have been a management consultant serving a wide range of public and private sector clients. I have carefully avoided any semblance of conflict of interest between me, my firm and public sector clients.

Apparently, several City Council members don't appreciate the difference between an employee and a lobbyist, particularly when both feast out of the same taxpayer trough.

Since several of our important elected officials unequivocally defend this practice, they should be held accountable for any abuses and / or unethical practices they tolerate.
