Mayor's Talks With Father May Break Rules
"He's my dad. I have a relationship with him, I talk to him about work." La Crosse mayor Matt Harter made that admission during a press conference he called last week to address questions surrounding a visit he made with his dad to the county's solid waste director. Oops. In a confidential memo our newsroom has obtained, the city attorney says those casual dinner conversations may violate the citys' confidentiality ordinances. Another warns that other comments the mayor made about lobbying city council members at their home could violate open meetings rules.
