This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I suggest there might be a violation of Nepotism laws.
The conflict law prohibits elected and appointed public officials at the state, county, and municipal level from participating (in particular matters in which their immediate family members have a financial interest.
Immediate family is defined in the statute as "the employee and his spouse, and their parents, children, brothers and sisters." For example, an official's brother-in-law would be considered "immediate family" if he were the brother of the official's spouse but not if he were married to the official's sister.
In addition to these sections of the law, nepotism raises concerns under G.L. c. 268A, section 23, which sets forth standards of conduct regulating all public employees. Essentially, section 23 prohibits public officials from using their position to secure an unwarranted privilege of substantial value for themselves or others, or from acting in a manner which gives a basis for the impression either that they are improperly influenced by another person, or that someone is unduly enjoying their favor because of kinship.
Therefore, if a public official wishes to participate in a matter which affects the financial interest of a relative, even if that relative is not a member of his or her immediate family - a cousin or niece - they may not give preference to the relative because of the relationship.
They must also be careful to avoid the appearance of favoritism based on kinship. This is done by publicly disclosing the relationship and following ordinary and accepted procedures without deviation.
The purpose of these provisions is to prevent conflicts or the appearance of impropriety that can arise whenever a public official's personal loyalty to a family member competes with the public interest that objective decisions be made regarding public employment.
I suggest you can file a complaint with the ethics commission and also you can consider having a local attorney file in court for an injunction, which would put these positions on hold until after the ethics commission makes a ruling.
Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a positive rating ensures I get credit for my time and information in this regard.
