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.
“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 asserted that Lindsey went to several county departments searching for possible illegalities at the property.
