County ethics reform package announced; procurement, salaries, potential conflicts targeted


New Castle County Executive Thomas P. Gordon announced an  ethics reform package. 

Gordon worked  with County Chief Administrative Officer David Grimaldi, Councilman Bob Weiner (R) and Council President Chris Bullock (D) in drafting the  proposal that  disclose  all vendor agreements, employee salaries and freedom of information equests. This information will be posted on our newly created webpage,, which already contains 2013 contract data. “I am pleased to collaborate in this bipartisan initiative to foster good government and transparency in County government” said  Weiner.

This proposal will  require new vendors to disclose, on the bidding documents, campaign contributions made to County Officials within the previous 24 months. It will require legislators to disclose the authors, in whole or in part, of proposed legislation. Godeon said  the public has a right to know which, if any, special interest group took part in the advancement of legislation.
