When Shelton resident Gregory Tetro went to City Hall to attend a Board of Ethics meeting on July 14, he learned that the city hasn’t had an ethics board since 2013.
“My first thought is, ‘There’s no ethics in Shelton,’” Tetro said in a speech directed at the Board of Aldermen. “I found out the last meeting was on Oct. 10, 2013. I know this because that is the last meeting that actually has minutes. The April 10, 2014, meeting was cancelled and the April 9, 2015, meeting was on the agenda but no minutes of that meeting were posted. I also noticed John Basher had to resign before Dec. 1, 2015. I know this because per the code of ordinances he could not retain that position when he became the Mayor’s Administrative Assistant.”
