What happens to a Keizer City Councilor who steps out of line in dealing with the public?

According to Mayor Lore Christopher, the answer is simple: nothing.

During a work session Monday night, Christopher asked that a process be started, detailing what happens if a councilor needs to be reprimanded or disciplined in some way.

The topic was brought up in response to a complaint Christopher received from an Eagle Scout parent last Saturday regarding an interaction with councilor Ken LeDuc.

“We have no process for dealing with it,” Christopher said. “If we act inappropriately, there is no process. There is nothing that says how we come to a decision. I think that starts with us. We need to police ourselves.”
