The City of San Antonio is currently accepting applications from residents in all City Council districts who are eligible to serve on the Ethics Review Board. The Ethics Review Board is comprised of 11 members appointed by the Mayor and each City Council member for staggered two-year terms.
In May 2004, the City Charter was amended to establish an independent Ethics Review Board with jurisdiction over the City Ethics Code and the Municipal Campaign Finance Regulations. Members must be residents of the City and have good moral character. No member of the board shall be: a salaried City official or employee; an elected public official; a candidate for elected public office; an officer of a political party; a campaign treasurer, campaign manager, officer or other policy or decision-maker for the campaign of any candidate for elected public office; a campaign treasurer, campaign manager, officer or other policy or decision-maker for any political action committee as defined in the Texas Election Code; a member of any City Board or Commission other than the Ethics Review Board; a member of any board or commission for which the position is appointed by City Council; or a lobbyist required to register under Division 5 of the Ethics Code. No member of the Board shall have any convictions for a felony or a crime of moral turpitude, or found in violation of any provisions of the City’s Code of Ethics.
The Commission meets as necessary in the Municipal Plaza Building, 114 W. Commerce, usually at 6 p.m.
Positions are available for City Council Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. Those interested in applying for one of the available positions may do so online using the City’s web-based application for boards and commission at the City's website
