Town of Windsor Passes Ethics Code in Wake of Foppoli Scandal

All elected and appointed Windsor officials must now follow a values-based code of ethics and conduct. The Windsor Town Council approved a motion to establish the code on Wednesday, amid the ongoing sexual harassment scandals involving former mayor Dominic Foppoli. Before the vote, the Town Council didn’t have a code outlining how to address misconduct among its members or other appointed city leaders. Windsor officials had been discussing creating a code of ethics and conduct since December. Fourteen women, including Windsor Vice Mayor Esther Lemus, have accused Foppoli of sexual assault or misconduct.
