SALEM, Ore. (AP) - An ethics complaint filed against Lincoln City Mayor Donald Williams accuses him of advocating the repeal of a rule that hurt him financially.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://stjr.nl/1UmMEMV ) that Williams says he did not violate any laws and called the complaint “overkill.”

The City Council filed the 26-page complaint with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission on Aug. 21. It says Williams was acting on a conflict of interest and using his public office for financial gain.

The complaint says Williams has a financial stake in his spouse’s vacation home rental businesses and alleges that he violated zoning ordinances. It says he violated ethics law by trying to repeal those ordinances or curtail their enforcement.

William says he didn’t do anything wrong.
