New Documents Raise Questions About Hiring of Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price’s Boyfriend
The job that Antwon Cloird received was not publicly advertised, county officials say. Ethics experts who have criticized his new gig now say it is apparent that Price and the county did not follow good governance standards when hiring Cloird.
It “just doesn’t pass the ethical test,” said John Pelissero, senior scholar on government ethics at Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. “Appearances are what should be concerning to the DA and the DA’s Office. This doesn’t look good.”
