Philadelphia mayoral candidate Allan Domb released on Feb. 10 a plan to prevent conflicts of interest arising from his portfolio of real estate holdings in Center City. The plan includes selling his business and properties to an entity that would be owned by his son and other investors, if elected, and having an independent ethics expert review interactions between the new entity and the city government. CERL’s Prof. Claire Finkelstein assisted Domb in drawing up this plan.
