In regards to the recent resignation/ retirement and the appointment of Ken Johnson to Cleveland City Council


It may be legal but it is not what the majority of the public expect.  It is an act of self-enrichment that should not be allowed.

Public pensions should be intended to provide retirement security, not pre-retirement wealth - double pay.

Because it is legal doesn't make it ethical.  Because Council had the votes to make this happen doesn't make it right.

Public officials should be held by the people, to the highest level of ethical behavior and this does not pass what should be a high standard.

See the link below for some links to the Ohio Revised Code...which made this possible and a good government piece as well.
