WLU could of filmed this class on Ethics Primer and afforded a lot more of the local politicans to know what is right and legal. Next time Wheeling has an Executive Session it would be interesting to see if it is on the agenda and how the item is reported before and after the meeting in the paper at the meeting..

This State Ethics Agency needs to be granted more power to fine for violations if only to show a record of abuse by all workers and elected officials and relieve the load on the Circuit Court. The public needs to know before they vote. Even a simple $50 fine could be enough to show and record abusive practices. Government abuse is greater than a speeding violation and should be fine for the public.

He must of not of attended any ethics training on personal gain and "double dipping" by government employees since he was also the dogcatcher for the city.

This development in Weirton just goes to show you the lack of Ethics training and maybe a whole series of training films should be produced and showed on the WLU station as a public service. Maybe they could make a reality series like called “BUCK STOLEN “ on WV local governments.
