Perspectives: City of Tallahassee Ethics

Oct 31, 2014

Julie Meadows-Keefe, the newly hired ethics officer for the City of Tallahassee, talks about her education and enforcement responsibilities.  Joining the conversation by phone is Dan Krassner with Integrity Florida, who also represents the group “Citizens for Ethics Reform”, which advocates voters adopt more sweeping changes to the city’s ethics policies and procedures.

This is among the most closely watched and hotly contested seats in the U.S. House.  Two-term incumbent, Republican Steve Southerland of Panama City, is being challenged by Democrat Gwen Graham of Tallahassee.  Due to a scheduling conflict, she was unable to join the discussion, but Congressman Southerland was in the studio to explain his position on various matters and field many questions from listeners.
