San Jose Mayor Renews Six-figure Contract With Washington PR Guru
Liccardo’s contract with Craig may raise questions, but that’s politics, not ethics, Pelissero said.
“Contractors get hired by cities and states for many reasons, including reputation management and general promotion of the government,” Pelissero said. “One can disagree with how the mayor spends money, but that is a political issue, not an ethical one.”
John Pelissero, senior scholar and professor emeritus of political science at Loyola University Chicago quoted in San Jose Spotlight.
