Inside OC with Rick Reiff: Ethics and Politics with Bill Mitchell

I was honored to discuss my favorite topic – ethics in local government – on Rick Reiff’s PBS show, “Inside OC.” In this panel, we discussed how Orange County voters approved the formation of an Ethics Commission to enforce laws that require politicians to disclose campaign contributions so voters know where candidates get their money – and who they might feel beholden to, if elected. Clearly, the voters want more transparency. The reason we needed this commission was because our district attorney has failed to enforce these regulations.
