  1. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.

  2. Am I the only citizen that thinks this is too incredible to be believed? How could he not be benefitting from this connection? There are good people that work for state government but it's idiots like this that cast doubt on the honesty of all the other employees of state agencies. Where is the integrity of the people who are in a position to do something about this? So disgusted.....

  3. why are businesses continueing to leave? Real estate is flat. I base my opinion on economic reality, not talking points. I still own land there.
