Boston, MA — The State Ethics Commission is pleased to announce the appointment of attorney Eve Slattery as its General Counsel and Legal Division Chief. Attorney Slattery has practiced law for more than two decades and will begin her new position on August 6th.

The State Ethics Commission administers and civilly enforces the Massachusetts conflict of interest law (G.L. c. 268A) and financial disclosure law (G.L. c. 268B). The Commission’s mission is to foster integrity in public service in state, county and local government; to promote the public's trust and confidence in that service; and to prevent conflicts between private interests and public duties. The Commission is independent and non-partisan.
