Panel to discuss ethics among elected officials
Palm Beach State College Center for Applied Ethics will host a panel discussion March 28 on Palm Beach County’s efforts to maintain ethics among elected officials.
The group will meet from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Public Safety Conference Center, room 108 on the College’s Lake Worth campus.
The event, which coincides with Ethics Awareness Month in Palm Beach County, is free and open to the public. The keynote speaker is Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg.
Other panelists are:
• Mark Bannon, executive director of the Palm Beach County Commission on Ethics
• Kim Ardila-Morgan, director of the Center for Applied Ethics at Palm Beach State
• John Carey, Palm Beach County’s Inspector General
Aronberg was elected state attorney for the 15th Judicial Circuit in November 2012. He is a former assistant attorney general, White House fellow and Florida senator.
As state attorney, Aronberg leads a team of 120 prosecutors and 220 professional staff in five offices throughout Palm Beach County. Aronberg’s leadership has led to a significant increase in conviction rates for both felonies and misdemeanors, a decrease in the number of juveniles directly filed into adult court, and a greatly improved working relationship with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
