PK Law Attorney Noelle W. Newman is one of the newest board members of the Baltimore City Ethics Board. Major Brandon Scott swore in Ms. Newman on July 6 seen on Charm TV Baltimore!
The Baltimore City Board of Ethics is an independent body comprised of five members that oversee Baltimore’s Public Ethics Law, contained in Article 8 of the City Code. The Ethics Law applies to all Baltimore City officials and employees. It ensures that officials and employees serve the public with fairness and independence by guarding against conflicts of interest and other types of improper actions connected with City employment. The Ethics Law also governs lobbyist registration and activity in the City. The Ethics Board oversees and enforces Baltimore’s Ethics Law. With the help of its dedicated staff in the Office of the Inspector General, the Board fulfills the following responsibilities: complaints and investigations, enforcement and discipline, public awareness and education, ethics training, advisory opinions and other guidance, collection and review of financial disclosure statements and other forms as well as lobbyist registration and reporting.
Congratulations to Noelle and the other members on the board for their commitment to our city.
