Ethics board: Aldermen OK to vote for city attorney
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The city ethics board agreed Friday that all three members of the Monroe Common Council should be allowed to vote which lawyer the city should hire - despite their personal and professional connections to members of both law firms seeking the position. Aldermen Brooke Bauman, Michael Boyce and Jeff Newcomer were the subjects of discussion after Boyce raised the question of whether he was ethically allowed to decide between Voegeli, Ewald and Bartholf Law Offices and the other firm in question, Kittelsen, Barry, Wellington, Thompson and Schluesche. Todd Schluesche, who is a member of the Kittelsen firm, is Boyce's brother-in-law.
