Ethics Survey - Part II

1. Default Section

 
As we reported last week, the Metropolitan Charter Commission recently approved ethical guidelines for the new government. Citizens have told us at Rebuild Government that iron-clad ethics rules are a priority for them.

As usual, we'd appreciate your forwarding this survey and encouraging everyone you know to get involved and have a voice in the decisions of the charter commission.
