Current board member Maria Krokidas designated Chair

BOSTON – Governor Charlie Baker recently appointed Josefina Martinez to the State Ethics Commission and designated existing member Maria Krokidas as Chair. The Commission works to foster integrity in public service in state, county and local government, and to promote the public's trust and confidence in that service and to prevent conflicts between private interests and public duties.

“Josie Martinez has an impressive 28-year track record of litigation experience in state and federal court that will make her a valuable addition to the State Ethics Commission,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “I am also pleased to designate current member Maria Krokidas to serve as Chair of the Commission and look forward to her leadership enforcing the Commonwealth’s conflict of interest and financial disclosure laws.”

The State Ethics Commission is a non-partisan, independent agency, consisting of five members appointed to serve staggered, five-year terms with three appointments made by the Governor, one by the Attorney General and one by the Secretary of the Commonwealth. The Commission administers and enforces the conflict of interest and financial disclosure laws and has jurisdiction over state, county and municipal employees. Josefina Martinez will join the newly designated Commission Chair, Maria Krokidas, the Honorable David A. Mills (ret.), the Honorable R. Marc Kantrowitz (ret.) and Thomas J. Sartory. The Commission functions in three separate divisions: Legal Division; Public Education and Communications Division; and Enforcement Division.
