Should the Inspector General be able to initiate his or her own investigations of Aldermen without a complaint from outside the office?

Corruption

Yes

YES

I believe the City Council needs its own independent IG, with subpoena power, but due to the
current situation with the Legislative IG, I believe the current Legislative IG should be rolled in to
the current Municipal IG’s office, be given subpoena power, without oversight from the Mayor or
Corporation Counsel. They should be able to initiate their own investigations and should be able
to pursue anonymous complaints.

yes. I believe that we can give the office that power, but only if it is
random, and has clearly stated limits on what is defined as “investigate”. The office should not be
initiating undercover sting operations

Of course.

actual problem, not a fishing expedition.
