Councilman Clint Olivier said Monday that he will ask the Fresno City Council to ban the practice of “ghost voting” when it meets Jan. 7. “People expect integrity from their public officials,” Olivier said Monday, Dec. 28, 2015. “I don’t believe it is something that has been abused, but it could be abused by future councils.” The move comes after The Bee published a story over the weekend noting that Olivier and others have cast votes during December meetings without being present during the council discussion on the items.
