I'll Take Moral Turpitude for a $1,000, Please


The City Commission tonight will decide on a policy for the selection of board/committee appointees. There's been quite a hold-up on appointments with many boards having vacancies because of this proposed policy.

I missed the special meeting held earlier this month while away at a marketing conference.

Here are my thoughts on board appointments:

1. I believe boards should be equally represented by the commissioners, hence, the respective districts.

2. I do not believe in setting up a new board/committee to review applicants.

3. I do not believe in appointing folks who do not reside in Brownsville.

4. And, according to the proposed policy, individuals with a felony conviction or who have over the past 10 years been convicted of any crime of "moral turpitude" may not appointed. I don't believe this should be included in the policy. Some folks make mistakes at a young age, and later become contributing members of society via volunteerism/civic engagement. Why should these folks be excluded?

Besides who defines "moral turpitude," and what makes that person better than the next? I found this on one Web site: "Moral turpitude is usually vague, in a context where it's vitally important not to be vague."

We'll see how this goes tonight.

Who is doing the background check, fingerprinting, urine sample, etc.? Does "moral turpitude" include drunk driving?
