Ethics Commission reprimands Annapolis mayor over ‘DinghyGate’

September 22, 2022

The Annapolis City Council may have voted 8-1 to deputize Mayor Gavin Buckley’s boat in June, but the mayor was wrong to preside over those deliberations, the city’s Ethics Commission has found. The commission issued a formal reprimand against Buckley on Monday, ruling that the Democrat should have recused himself from deliberations. According to the commission’s letter, “the mayor presided over the City Council proceedings without mentioning a possible conflict of interest which were [sic], in the opinion of the Commission, obvious to the meeting participants.”
