Questions for Karen Kennard June 8, 2015

The Austin Bulldog’s analysis of Statements of Financial Information filed by City Attorney (and Interim Intergovernmental Affairs Officer) Karen Kennard for the years 2010 through 2014 raised questions about whether she should have reported Scott Joslove as her domestic partner, as defined by City Code Section 2-7-71(2), because: • She owns a home but rents it to another person. • She lives in a house owned by Joslove. • She reported that Joslove gives her gifts every year. • Joslove is a designated beneficiary who will receive lump-sum benefits in the event of her death. Kennard was asked two questions by The Austin Bulldog’s e-mail of June 8, 2015: 1. Do either you or Scott Joslove have a prior undissolved marriage? 2. Why should Joslove not be listed as a domestic partner in your SFI, with attendant reportingof his sources of income, assets and liabilities?
