On April 25, 2022, the Board of Ethics issued its Final Determination in Creamer v. Morrison, an administrative enforcement proceeding initiated by the Board’s Executive Director in June of 2021.

The Executive Director charged that Celena Morrison, the Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs, violated the Ethics Code by soliciting, accepting, and receiving a gift in the form of a loan. Ms. Morrison requested a hearing, which was held on December 15, 2021. The Board found that the evidence presented at the hearing did not demonstrate that a violation of the Ethics Code occurred.

A copy of the Final Determination is attached hereto. In the near future, the Board will post the full case record on its website. All documents publicly released will be redacted in accordance with relevant law.  View the press release (PDF)
