Five Dismissed ethics complaints on-line

The Local Finance Board (LFB) dismissed ethics complaints against the following public officials.  All of the dismissal notices are on-line here.  Although they are somewhat dated, I decided to put them on-line because the LFB does not provide the public with any on-line information about any of its complaints and I have long believed that the disposition of ethics cases are of public interest regardless of whether they result in a violation or a dismissal.  Following is some information about each complaint in the PDF at the above link.  Details about the nature of the ethics charge is in the body of the dismissal letters.
