Ethics board clears Valdosta's mayor


Valdosta's citizens ethics review board ruled Monday night that Mayor John Fretti did not violate any city ordinance or code of conduct related to travel expenses.

Fretti charged the city and the state Department of Community Affairs for trips made between June 2009 and June 2010.

He said the double reimbursement was a simple oversight that was corrected as soon as he realized the problem.

Fretti asked the district attorney to investigate. That's still ongoing, but the ethics board probe is now closed after the board presented their findings to city council members Monday night.

Fretti is not running for a third term.
