Feldman to Head NY Assembly’s Office of Ethics and Compliance
On September 28, state Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced Jane Feldman will be the executive director of the newly created Office of Ethics and Compliance.
A bipartisan Assembly committee recommended Feldman after conducting a nationwide search. Heastie said Feldman stood out from other applicants due to her years of experience, specifically her service as the first executive director of the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission.
In her new role in the Office of Ethics and Compliance, Feldman will be responsible for ethics training for Assembly members and staff, ensuring members are aware of the services available to them through the office, answering questions regarding ethics and disclosures, and working with the majority and minority conferences’ ethics counsel to determine legislative ethics areas to review.
Feldman, who began her career in the New York County District Attorney’s Office, said in a statement she was “excited to return to her home state to help the Assembly accomplish its ethics and policy goals.”
