JOPLIN, MO.--- Joplin City Councilman, Mike Woolston, has sent an open records request to the city asking for a complete copy of the recent investigation which alleges he has committed an ethical violation. The investigative report is the same report which led to the firing of former Joplin City Manager Mark Rohr.

It also alleges that Woolston has committed some ethical violations in regards to Joplin's redevelopment efforts and his personal business. Woolston says if the investigation reports is made public, he will address voter questions directly to maintain his and the city council's credibility.

" It is viably important that our citizens believe in the leadership that the council provides. To that end, in an effort to reassure the citizenry that I have done everything possible to operate in a legal and ethical manner, I encourage any citizen that has questions about how I conducted myself to call me," says Woolston.

Woolston intends on staying on the council and will run for re-election in April. Even after the investigator recommended that he step down from city government.
