New ethics group eyes "culture of corruption"

The Palm Beach Post

Leadership Palm Beach County, a nonprofit organization formed more than two decades ago to foster efficient communication among county leaders, has created a special ethics committee to tackle the "culture of corruption" that has colored the community in recent months. "We have been talking about how we reverse that and have a 'culture of ethics,'" Marty Rogol, the group's president, said Thursday. "Obviously, this is something that is high on everybody's agenda right now. … It's important for the image of Palm Beach County that we don't do this anymore."


The committee, formed in the past two months, will look at creating an ethics "pledge" for local businesses, governments and professionals. Members also may hold a community meeting on the issue and craft an educational campaign, Rogol said.
