Statement of New York City Bar Association President Carey R. Dunne on Government Ethics Reform

Looking ahead to the 2014 State of the State message, the New York City Bar Association urges Governor Cuomo to put first and foremost a strong package of reforms in government ethics. New Yorkers deserve clean government. The recent report of the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption confirms that, sadly, deplorable conduct remains rampant in Albany. The Commission’s report makes a number of excellent reform proposals. The City Bar encourages the Governor and the Legislature to enact a strong reform package as soon as possible in the 2014 legislative session.
