From: William Bloor
Just this morning I learned that there exists a potential conflict of interest for me and the Legal Dept. in the subject matter coming before Ethics Bd (2). For that reason, no one in the Legal Dept may represent the Ethics Bd (2).
I realize this is late notice, and I apologize for that.
The inaugural meeting of Ethics Bd (2) has been scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday March 31. I have asked the County Prosecuting Attorney whether he might be able to assign one of his Deputies to represent the Board. He will let me know before the end of the day, but due to work load and prior commitments in the Prosecutor’s Office, we should not expect a Deputy to be assigned.
Therefore, most likely, the Board will have two choices: (1) conduct the initial meeting without an attorney to represent the Board (with the understanding that an attorney will be obtained prior to the second meeting); or (2) continue the initial meeting to a later date. The choice is yours, but in any event please let Jennifer know your decision.
Thank you, and again I apologize for the late discovery of this potential conflict.
