Mayor Singer has led the city forward the last few months after a turbulent time, building on his prior successful efforts to raise ethics standards. Scott sponsored three sets of ethics reforms in his first three years of office. When issues came to light concerning the prior mayor, he proposed a set of ethics reforms that now require full disclosure of ethics inquiries and more guidance for ethics matters involving elected officials. Previously, he authored the Ethics Disclosure Resolution and the Increased Ethics Standards Act, which now provide more information to the public regarding potential conflicts and ethical issues for city board appointees. Scott has advocated for clearer goals and defined deadlines to make sure government is always accountable to residents.
