Board Membership

As reconstituted, the Ethics Board comprises 5 members, to be appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. Each member must be “of known personal integrity” and possess “recognized knowledge and interest in government and civics”; none may be a lobbyist, a government official or employee (other than of a college, university, or the like), or a candidate for elected public office.

Of the 5 members:

  • 1 member is nominated by the President of the City Council,
  • 1 member is nominated by the City Comptroller, and
  • 3 members, at least 2 of whom must be lawyers, are named by the Mayor.

The members serve staggered, 5-terms. The Board’s Chair is elected annually by the Board from among its members.
