The city's Ethics Review Board took up the case of Deputy City Manager Pat DiGiovanni Tuesday night. DiGiovanni opened the case himself for an opinion to find out if he violated the city's ethics code.
In a unanimous ruling Tuesday night, the Ethics Review Board found that Deputy City Manager Pat DiGiovanni violated the city's ethics code when he failed to recuse himself from a conflict of interest involving a city contract and his future employer.
Earlier this year, DiGiovanni took on oversight of the selection process for contractors in a $300 million bid to expand and renovate the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
The last day to register to vote is Tuesday, October 9th. Bexar County Elections Administrator Jackie Callanen says the date is extended because of the Monday holiday, and she’s optimistic that a few extra people might register before the deadline.
"When we had the primary election, here in Bexar County we had 875,000 people registered to vote," said Callanen. "Today when I looked at the numbers, we had 898,000. So we're increasing by about 1,000 or 1,500 a day from the applications that we have."
