About the Ethics Board

»Why do we have an Ethics Board?
 
 Declared Policy of Milwaukee County 

It is declared that high moral and ethical standards among county public officials and county employees are essential to the conduct of free government.  The county believes that a code of ethics for the guidance of county public officials and county employees will help them avoid conflicts between their personal interests and their public responsibilities, will improve standards of public service, and will promote and strengthen the faith and confidence of the people of this county in their county public officials and county employees.  It is the intent of the county that in its operations the board shall protect to the fullest extent possible the rights of individuals affected  (M.C.G.O. § 9.01(1)).
