PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The daughter of one of the city’s top elected officials has left her job as her mother’s deputy, following an investigation by the Philadelphia Board of Ethics.
The Board of Ethics has found that deputy city commissioner Renee Tartaglione had repeatedly violated the restriction on city workers engaging in political activities, according to Shane Creamer, executive director of the board.
“Deputy city commissioner Tartaglione has admitted that she took part in the affairs of candidate campaigns and also the affairs of the Democratic City Committee.”
Renee Tartaglione is the daughter of an elected city commissioner, Marge Tartaglione. Renee has resigned her job, has agreed not to seek another city job for one year, and will pay $2,700 in fines.
“Ms. Tartaglione resolved this matter in a quick, efficient and very amicable fashion with the board,” said her attorney, William Brennan. “And I think that speaks volumes to her character.”
