Code of conduct back on the agenda

The controversy over a code of conduct for elected and appointed officials for the City of Westminster is not over.

On May 22, the council approved a brief, one-page code on a 3-0-2 vote, with Mayor Tri Ta and council members Kimberly Ho and Chi Charlie Nguyen in favor and council members Sergio Contreras and Tai Do abstaining. The vote came after nearly three hours of debate and public comment.

But Do has requested consideration of a longer, more comprehensive code at Wednesday’s meeting of the council.

Two related items are also before council members. One is a request by Do to change his official vote on commission and committee appointments at the Jan. 29 meeting because he didn’t know that two of the appointees were relatives of current council members.

He wants his vote changed from “yes” to “nay.”

Also, Ta and Ho are proposing to create a council policy requiring that two council measure support the placing of an item on the agenda.

The council will meet in its chambers at 8200 Westminster Blvd, with a closed session starting at 6:30 p.m. and the regular meeting at 7 p.m.
