Long Beach Residents Can Apply to Serve on Newly Formed Ethics Commission
City officials are accepting applications for the ethics commission approved by voters last November.
The charter amendment established a seven-member ethics commission.
The ethics commission will implement campaign finance, lobbying, conflicts of interest, and governmental ethics laws.
Qualified applicants may not concurrently hold elective office, work as an officer for a city candidate campaign, be a city employee, or employ or be employed by anyone required to register as a city lobbyist.
The mayor and city auditor will make four appointments to be confirmed by City Council.
The remaining three members will be appointed by the confirmed commissioners.
The deadline for submitting applications is June 7.
