Ethics Disclosure / Exemption for City Manager


One item that is mostly procedural but should be noted on tonight’s City Council Agenda is the following:

Vote-Auth Mayor Ex. Disclosure Statement c. 268A, s. 19


It is the Manager and Council recognizing that the Manager has a sister in-law who is part of the teacher’s union and publicly allowing the Manager to negotiate the new Teachers Union contract for the School Committee. (see conflict link above to read full amendment)

What is ironic is there are I believe at least two Councilors (possibly more) who also have family members in the teacher’s union, so I’m not sure if they can vote on this.
