Brown bombs on ethics; Silverman edges Frumin
Only 2.5% of voters gave Michael Brown positive marks for his response on ethics this week on Let's Choose DC (a partnership of Greater Greater Washington, DCist, and PoPville). Elissa Silverman took the top spot in your judgment, with Matthew Frumin second.
We asked the candidates to give their positions on 6 ethics proposals:
- Ban or limit outside employment
- Eliminate or constrain constituent service funds
- Ban corporate contributions to campaigns
- Ban "bundling" from multiple entities controlled by same person
- Ban contributions by contractors and/or lobbyists who do business with DC
- Forbid free or discounted legal services, travel gifts, sports tickets for councilmembers
Michael Brown, meanwhile, opposed banning outside employment and changes to constituent service funds. He also did not address the proposals involving monetary or in-kind campaign contributions. As a consequence, 47% of you said he did not answer the question while giving him the lowest finish of any candidate on any question thus far on Let's Choose DC.
This week, we're asking about school truancy. See the responses and vote now!
