Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.
Further investigation is also needed to determine whether Lindsey may have had a conflict of interest when he initiated a lawsuit naming the property owners and others.
I met with members of the Ethics Commission and brought documentation, Lindsey said. We came to an agreement that they need to investigate, and I believe this complaint needs to be investigated as well. I want an investigation of the complaint itself.

The Ethics Commission noted that public officials are prohibited from using or attempting to use their official positions to obtain a personal financial benefit or avoid a personal financial detriment, that would not have been available but for holding the public position.

A complaint was filed on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several family members associated with the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.
