  • Statement from Rep. Shirley Hankins Regarding Ethics Fine

    While I do not personally agree with findings of violation against the Ethics Act, I believe it is in the best interest of the 8th District to expeditiously settle this matter and to move forward. Therefore, I have decided not to contest the matter, but instead, bring it to a close.
