GOP says Gottheimer press release may have broken ethics rules

CLOSE Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-Wyckoff, discusses bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus he co-chairs on June 6, 2017 and argues the group should be involved in writing a bill to revamp taxes and fund infrastructure.

Josh Gottheimer’s office on Tuesday for using an official congressional email account to tout the Wyckoff Democrat’s campaign fund-raising totals, an apparent violation of House rules. “This is a troubling misuse of taxpayer dollars that deserves more scrutiny,” said Chris Martin, spokesman for the National Republican Campaign Committee. Gottheimer’s press secretary, Matt Fried, said the email was a mistake. “The office has a very strict policy banning any campaign work on official time,” Fried said. “We have had extensive briefings and take this extremely seriously. Unfortunately, one staff member made a mistake in violation of our policy. It should not have happened. We re-issued our guidelines and reminded everyone to be meticulous in following the rules.” The email from the official house.gov account of Abhi Rahman, Gottheimer’s communications director, highlighted that the congressman’s re-election campaign raised $729,000 during the last three months of 2017, and since the 2016 election ended had raised $3 million.

The rules specifically bar using House equipment and time for campaign press releases and “the creation or issuance of a campaign mailing.” Meredith McGehee, a government ethics expert at the Campaign Legal Center, said the rule is...

Clippers announced that the team has acquired forward Tobias Harris, guard Avery Bradley, center Boban Marjanovic, a 2018 Protected First Round Pick, and a 2019 Second Round Pick from the Detroit Pistons in exchange for forward Blake Griffin, forward Brice Johnson and center Willie Reed. “Blake Griffin had a tremendous impact on this organization and his legacy within the community of Los Angeles will be permanent. It was a pleasure getting to know and cheer for Blake. I wish him, as well as Brice and Willie, the best of luck. While change is hard, my confidence in our front office, led by Lawrence Frank and Michael Winger, along with the sage counsel of Jerry West, has never been higher. I believe today, more than ever, in our ultimate goal of winning an NBA Championship,” said Steve Ballmer, Chairman of the L.A. Clippers. “Blake is one of the best players ever to wear a Clippers jersey. We want to express our gratitude and respect for everything he has done for this team and the City of Los Angeles. This was a very difficult decision, but we ultimately felt it was appropriate for the franchise,” said Lawrence Frank, President of Basketball Operations. “We would also like to thank Brice and Willie for their contributions to our organization.” Harris, 25, has appeared in 48 games (all starts) for Detroit this season, averaging 18.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists, while shooting 40.9% from three-point range in 32.6 minutes.

Bee City USA® Renews City of Gillette’s Certification

By on Jan 29, 2018 in Press Release | 0 comments

Press Release – Bee City USA® has renewed Gillette’s certification for 2017 following a rigorous renewal application process. This completed the efforts of the Campbell County Master Gardeners’ Pollinator Committee to accomplish this recertification, the facilitating committee for Gillette’s efforts to engage the community in promoting pollinator-friendliness. In 2016, the United Nations reported that forty percent of the world’s 350,000 pollinator species were at risk of extinction. Bee City USA is a national nonprofit organization that galvanizes communities to sustain pollinators by providing them with healthy habitat, rich in a variety of native plants and free to nearly free of pesticides. Imperiled pollinators like honey bees, bumble bees, butterflies, moths, bats, hummingbirds, and others are responsible for the reproduction of ninety percent of the world’s wild plant species and one in every three bites of food we consume. Mayor, Louise Carter King said, “Our City Council understood the importance of sustaining pollinators when we voted to become a Bee City USA affiliate in 2016. We commend the Campbell County Master Gardeners’ Pollinator Committee for the impressive gains we made last year.” According to Megan McManamen, chair of the Pollinator Committee for the Campbell County Master Gardeners, “With the invaluable support of the Mayor, City Council, and the City Parks Division, we were able to create pollinator habitat and increase awareness of pollinator-friendly gardening practices in our community. From planting a Pollinator Rain Garden to hosting our first Annual Gillette Pollinator Day Celebration, we had an extremely successful first year as Wyoming’s first Bee City USA affiliate. We would also like to thank our community for being so supportive of our efforts.” A new year brings new opportunities for raising awareness of the vital role pollinators play in supporting our food systems and the planet generally. The Master Gardeners’ Pollinator Committee meetings are held throughout the year with dates and times advertised on the Campbell County Master Gardener webpage at www.ccgov.net/282/Master-Gardener and invites all residents of Gillette to offer their ideas for pollinator-friendly initiatives. The more people and organizations involved, the sooner pollinator declines will be reversed.
