RE: Ethics Commission Docket No. 96-183
Dear Mr. Hogan:
The Louisiana Board of Ethics, at its August 28, 1997 meeting, concluded a private investigation into the representations contained in a certificate of vote, a copy of which was forwarded under cover letter of March 24, 1997.
Following this private investigation, the Board, by a majority vote of its membership, at its August 28, 1997 meeting, ordered that a public hearing be conducted for the purpose of exploring the following:
That Roger Hogan, Superintendent of Golf Courses for the City of Shreveport, may have violated Section 1169 of the Louisiana Code of Governmental Ethics (La. R.S. 42:1169) by subjecting Jeffrey Todd Dean, a Golf Course Mechanic, to acts of reprisal for his reporting of alleged acts of impropriety by Mr. Hogan to his agency heads.
The hearing will be held on January 15, 1998, at 9:00 a.m., in the Louisiana Retirement Systems Building Board Room, 8401 United Plaza, 4th Floor, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
This public hearing will be conducted in accordance with the procedural requirements set forth in Section 1141D and 1143 of the Code, and in conformity with the Rules adopted by the Board, a copy of which is enclosed.
At the conclusion of this public hearing, the Board may impose the civil sanctions contained in Subpart C of the Code.
In order to fully cooperate with you in this matter, we will, upon request, provide you with copies of all documents we may introduce into evidence and the names and addresses of all witnesses we intend to call. If you desire the attendance of any witnesses, the Board can issue subpoenas for those witnesses. In order to have subpoenas issued you must, at least ten (10) days in advance of the hearing, supply the names and addresses of the persons to be subpoenaed and state the reasons that their testimony will be relevant and material.
If you need any additional information, please contact Patricia Douglas, the designated trial attorney.
