Board says mayor should have had disclosed conflict

Posted: Wednesday, March 24, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage's municipal Ethics Board says Mayor Dan Sullivan did not properly disclose a potential conflict in his dual role as mayor and administrator of a trust for his late father.

Sullivan is the son of former Mayor George Sullivan.

The city 30 years ago agreed to a one-of-a-kind life insurance policy for the elder Sullivan.

The Anchorage Assembly authorized a $193,000 payment Feb. 16. Afterward, assembly members said they were unaware that Dan Sullivan was the trust administrator.

The Anchorage Daily News reports an Ethics Board's letter says Sullivan should have disclosed a potential conflict last year when he presented his father's death certificate to the city benefits department.

The board says employees who work under Sullivan's direction would have to act on the matter.
