Chairman of Denver Board of Ethics Resigns
Brian Spano, chairman of the Denver Board of Ethics, has resigned due to a potential conflict of interest.
Spano is a law partner with Kristin Bronson, the newly appointed city attorney. Mayor Michael Hancock appointed Bronson in mid-August, and she will begin her position with the city on October 17.
Because the city attorney occasionally appears before the Board of Ethics, Spano is stepping down to avoid any questions about future conflicts of interest, real or perceived. His term was set to end in April. His resignation is effective October 19.
