Ritter Party Gets OK
Despite a new ethics initiative, Governor-elect Bill Ritter will be moving ahead with having an inauguration party.Amendment 41, passed by voters in November, limits the money public officials can receive to $50. It had raised questions over whether Ritter could receive significant private funding for the celebration.
Attorney General John Suthers has ruled that since the party is a private function, funding for it can continue as normal.
From the Rocky Mountain News :
“We have decided that we are not going to issue any opinions until such time as specific questions arise that necessitate our involvement,” said Deputy Attorney General Jason Dunn.
The date and location of the party is not known at this time.
