The New, Tougher Member-Items Form

Here’s the new form City Council members are being asked to fill out in order to avoid conflicts of interest when handing out member items.

It was sent over by a reader working for a City Council member who received it recently.

The two-page form asks that City Council member disclose any connection they may have to the group they are funding. It includes this warning in the fine print:

“[A] materially false statement willfully or fraudulently made in connection with this certification may subject the person making the false statement to criminal charges.”

The wording here is notably stronger than on the previous form.
