The three-page letter, introduced under new business by Legislator Mike Kunzwiler, D-Oswego, and Democratic caucus chairman, details some of the issues that Williams has been facing in the last few months regarding to the investigation by the Oswego County Board of Ethics into his deputy clerk’s failure to disclose her employment with Info Quick Solutions Inc. (IQS).
During that investigation, it was determined that the deputy clerk violated general municipal law by being employed with a company contracted by the county, but Williams, also investigated on similar accusations, was exonerated.
His letter to many members of the Republican caucus paints a scenario of several county employees making accusations against him and reporting those accusations to Kunzwiler.
“I’ve seen some rotten things happen in this Legislature from time to time,” Kunzwiler said, “but I received a copy of a letter addressed to Republican legislators from George Williams. What’s more disturbing about this letter is it goes on to degrade some of our county employees and (names them), which I believe is improper for a person in that position to do.
