A campaign for an improved ethics policy for the City of Naples
Naples' Motto: "Ethics Above All Else"
The mission of Ethics Naples is to add to the City’s Charter an independent “best practices” ethics commission for Naples.
In April 2018 we obtained 1,500 voter's signatures to place the Charter amendment on the ballot. Ethics Naples then spent 2 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars to successfully defend your right to vote on this amendment against a baseless lawsuit. (Full Naples Day News coverage here.)
On April 15, 2020, the newly elected City Council voted unanimously to place the Ethics Naples Charter amendment on the August 18, 2020 ballot. (NDN article here).
Any registered Naples voter can vote on this amendment.
We may be a small city physically, but in terms of property values – and corresponding temptations – we are bigger than many cities in Florida. Effective ethics procedures, education and enforcement are critical components of governmental integrity and citizen trust.
Please spend 10 minutes on our site to find out why we believe an improved ethics policy is important for our City.
