The Center for Public Integrity ranked Florida 30th for state government accountability and transparency. Strengthening ethics laws will allow citizens to have confidence that their elected officials are serving the public interest, rather than their own financial well-being. As our next State Representative, Joe will ensure that Florida residents can be confident that their elected officials are acting ethically by supporting legislation that:
Prohibits government employees convicted of corruption from future state government employment;
Requires mayors and city commissioners to file a full and public disclosure of their financial interests;
Extends the state’s lobbying ban on former lawmakers and statewide elected officers from two to six years.
