Florida: First in Our Hearts, First in Public Corruption Convictions
Actual illustration from the report.
Integrity Florida looked for models of successful ethics reform initiatives, and the best model we found so far in Florida was in Palm Beach County, where in 2010 a diverse coalition including the tea party, the League of Women Voters, Democrats and Republicans came together, along with the business community, to pass a series of ethics reforms. The leader of that initiative in Palm Beach County was Marty Rogol, and Marty was the first person I called and asked if their successful model could be replicated in other counties or statewide.
Marty agreed to serve on our board of directors, and helped us see the value in a diverse board of directors, and taking all the partisanship out of the room.
