Letter: Ethics are important
November 28, 2012, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

According to a recent presentation at the San Mateo County Council of Cities, over the past year at least six public agencies in San Mateo County have suffered incidents of employee fraud with losses from $40,000 to $2 million. These include traditional embezzlement, misappropriation and fraudulent financial transactions. Just down the freeway, there is the embarrassment of Santa Clara County’s Board of Supervisors president who has made headlines for flaunting ethics rules for years. Given these local situations, I am surprised to learn that on Nov. 20, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors rejected a resolution submitted by Dave Pine to enhance the county’s ethics reporting guidelines — guidelines that were recommended years ago by the San Mateo County’s Civil Grand Jury. I am looking forward to learning why San Mateo County’s elected officials appear to be eschewing current best practices in favor of business as usual.
