Sangamon Co. (ECWd) –

The Village of Chatham Ethics Commission held their second meeting today regarding bird finger-flipping Mayor Gray.  The commission found no evidence to support any ethics violations listed in the first complaint by Jewel Brant, however, her amended complaint hit it out of the park.

In a unanimous vote by the three members, they concurred with the complaint and found the Mayor’s conduct of flipping-off a citizen to be conduct unbecoming of a public official.  Their recommendation to the full village board will be to censure Mayor Gray for his actions.

It is our understanding that a request for his resignation is also awaiting a response from the Mayor.
