Editor’s note 1/7/16

Of course aldermen and the mayor think they – all of them and nobody but them – are the best ones to decide on city government’s ethics, but the squabbling does not inspire confidence that anything will be resolved. Neither does their inability to do anything about the 15 complaints that were brought forward to last year’s experimental inspector general. The public doesn’t know, and may never know, whether these complaints are serious or trivial. What a mess. A letter to the editor this week from Bill Klein (Letters, p. 5) suggests giving the ethics inspector job and a small office to one trusted and courageous person. “Do we really need another expensive appendage added to the city organizational chart,” he writes, “or do we need a fearless, determined man or woman prepared to root out the truth?” –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
