One of the major topics on this Wednesday’s MPRB agenda is Graco and their reneging on their agreement with the Park Board.   Park Board Commissioner Scott Vreeland has suggested in a post to the Issues List that the public might want to remind Graco of its own code of ethics that states “good ethics is good business.”  And he quotes from their website their code, suggesting that the public might want to remind Graco of their code which is quoted below.

“Graco is committed to conducting its worldwide business according to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. This commitment stems not only from a  desire to avoid the many problems ethical violations can create, but more  importantly from a conviction that good ethics is good business. If you know of, or suspect, a violation of Graco’s Conduct of Business Guidelines, or a violation of any law, you should do one of the  following: Call, write or e-mail Graco’s Vice President and General Counsel.
