TexasEthics.com™ promotes integrity at the local level of government. The site is a resource that provides educational material to inform local leaders of the rules and guidelines that affect conduct, decision-making, implementation and adjudication.
Some rules are mandatory, others are merely aspirational. Certain laws restrict behavior, while others just require that standardized forms be submitted. All are meant to curb corruption and instill confidence in the minds of the citizenry.
Those who agree to serve the public should remain mindful not just of the requirements and procedures, but also the spirit of good government and the broad unwritten ethical responsibilities that come with public office.
TexasEthics.com™ is a project of the Texas Center for Municipal Ethics™ and the Bojorquez Law Firm, PC.
