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.”



Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.
“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.”
Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.
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.
