Ethics, politics and decisions – Tales from the trenches

Hear tales amassed over 72 years of collective LAFCo experience of ethics and politics and the sometimes whacky decisions that come from such a mix. This session will explore various case studies in which ethics – or a lapse thereof – made all the difference.  Additionally, we will explore other case studies offered by LAFCos throughout the state in which ethical dynamics were integral to a commission proceeding and subsequent outcome. Don’t miss this session - you don’t want to be the one needing an ethical village to help you correct that ethical lapse. Speakers: David Church, Executive Officer, San Luis Obispo LAFCo; Don Lockhart, Executive Officer, Sacramento LAFCo; Pat McCormick, Executive Officer, Santa Cruz LAFCo.
