On Monday District One City Council Candidate Cloetta Shotts proposed that Lubbock adopt a Code of Ethics.
Shotts released a draft code of the ordinance Monday. It calls for elected and appointed officials to show a commitment beyond themselves, beyond the law, a commitment to the public good, accountability to the public and responsible application of resources.
"Sadly our citizens have lost faith in local government and elected officials. With the adoption of the code of ethics we can assure our citizens that the people they elect will be interested in the good of the City of Lubbock," said District One City Council Candidate, Cloetta Shotts.
Shotts also challenged other City Council Candidates including her opponent in District One, Linda DeLeon to review the proposal and let voters know whether or not they support such an ordinance.
