DETROIT - Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano unveiled Thursday ethics reforms in an effort to prevent controversies such as the one linked to former county employee Turkia Mullin's $200,000 severance pay.
Among the reforms:
-- Appointees can no longer be pressured to volunteer for political campaigns.
-- Appointees can no longer receive money or work for contractors for at least one year after leaving the country.
-- Several changes have been made to the way the county will handle severance pay.
