Ethics Commission appoints officers
Wednesday, July 29, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Both Kaplan and Einhorn served in those capacities on the previous incarnation of the commission, and those who worked with them vouched for their continued service to the new members of the commission, who now make up a majority. “It’s not an easy job,” said Commissioner Donna Beth McCormick. “I think that all of you new members, your time will come. But you kind of need to see how it works.”
