Eliminate cronyism

No Comments 05 February 2013

Eliminate cronyism.  The state ethics code should cover all employees and vendors performing a government function or service, including government-run groups like Enterprise Florida.  There should be criminal penalties for conflicts of interest, misuse of a public position and self-dealing.  All programs that function as systems of legalized corruption and cronyism should be overhauled or eliminated.  State and local government policies should be free of favoritism and instead focused on creating vibrant communities where every employer matters and entrepreneurship thrives.
