Updating Denver’s Code of Ethics
Thursday, February 2, 2017
5 - 7 PM (program begins at 5:30)
Forest Room 5 (2532 15th Street, Denver)

Unearthing the gifts given to Denver city officials—such as tickets to events and expensive meals—is not an easy task. Gift disclosure reports are not posted online, and officials are only required to file these disclosures once a year. Denver County Clerk and Recorder Debra Johnson recently advanced changes to post gift and financial disclosures online and increase the frequency of reporting. Denver City Council adopted these changes, and is also considering strengthening Denver’s ethics code—including establishing a dollar limit on the gifts accepted by city officials each year.

Learn more about these efforts to strengthen transparency from Debra Johnson, Denver County Clerk and Recorder, and Peg Perl, senior counsel at Colorado Ethics Watch, at our next informational happy hour. This event is free and open to everyone. We will provide a few snacks, and drinks will be available for purchase.

Please RSVP via our Facebook event page or by emailing Caroline at cfry@commoncause.org.
