Jane Feldman to Leave Colorado Independent Ethics Commission
Jane Feldman is stepping down as Executive Director of the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission. She is the first and only director to serve, as the commission is a product of a 2006 ethics ballot measure.
Luis Toro, director of Colorado Ethics Watch, praised Feldman, calling her “the very model of a dedicated civil servant.”
While Feldman looks forward to retirement from state government, her critics claim she may simply be a scapegoat. Complaints brought the commission under public scrutiny, and a House committee will soon hear a bill concerning the commission’s procedural mechanisms. Meanwhile, the commission is investigating Gov. John Hickenlooper for alleged gift violations.
There is no word yet of a new Executive Director.
