Pinal supervisors clash over forming own ethics committee

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors discussed the prospect of forming an ethics committee Wednesday but took no action.

Supervisor Kevin Cavanaugh, R-Coolidge, thinks there should be a Board of Supervisors Ethics Committee and a Management Efficiency and Waste Reduction Committee. But board Chairman Steve Miller, R-Casa Grande, said in his opinion the ethics committee is the voters who elect county supervisors.

Miller said if he saw something that appeared to go against policy, he would alert the county manager and ask him to investigate. Cavanaugh responded that if the alleged violation involved a supervisor, he would be asking a subordinate to investigate his boss.

Miller replied if the allegation were that egregious, it would also go to the County Attorney’s Office. He also said bad ethics may not necessarily be illegal.
