A member of the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics said she will be submitting her formal resignation on Wednesday.
“I told the commission that I will be submitting my resignation,” Yaroshefsky said in a brief phone interview.
Yaroshefsky declined to elaborate, but earlier Tuesday she had called for more transparency from the state ethics board while calling for a national search firm to get involved in JCOPE’s search for a new executive director.
The board quickly moved to executive session after Yaroshefsky’s motion. Several hours later—after adjourning its meeting—JCOPE announced it had tapped Letizia Tagliafierro, a former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to take over as executive director.
Yaroshefsky was appointed to JCOPE by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.
