County Board Adopts Code Of Ethics, But Struggles To Follow

county board photoThe Mercer County Board adopted a code of ethics on Tuesday night, but they didn’t do a very good job of following it, according to Chairman Jeff McWhorter.

There was plenty of bickering and a lot of back and forth between county board members and member Ted Pappas says the code was adopted and then basically thrown out the window.

Among the items in the code of ethics is promising “to maintain a respectful attitude toward employees, other public officials, colleagues and associates”.
