Council Members Call For Reform After Arrests At City Hall

Nov 16, 2020

Council members Betsy Sundermann and Greg Landsman held separate press conferences Monday morning to announce reforms at City Hall. This comes after Cincinnati City Council Member Jeff Pastor was arrested last week, and former Council Member Tamaya Dennard was arrested earlier this year. Both are accused by federal authorities on bribery charges.

Sunderman is proposing a charter amendment that allows for the suspension of a council member accused of corruption, and if convicted, removes them from office.

Landsman wants to establish a city ethics commission and designate a chief ethics and good government officer.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss their proposals are Cincinnati City Council members Betsy Sunderman; and Greg Landsman.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
