Colorado ethics commission tells Aurora councilwoman to follow state ethics rules because of job

Jon Murray (Denver Post)- A state employee who also serves as a city councilwoman in Aurora should follow Colorado’s Amendment 41 rather than her city’s less-stringent gift rules, the state’s ethics commission said Monday.

Councilwoman Angela Lawson works by day as the lobbyist program manager in the secretary of state’s office. She and her employer have been waiting more than a year for an advisory opinion from the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission following her election in November 2015. The request was delayed after the five-member commission decided first to sort out how to approach home-rule cities that have their own ethics codes and don’t follow the state’s Amendment 41, passed by voters in 2006.
