Former human relations investigator heads Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board
Pittsburgh’s Ethics Hearing Board has a new executive manager.
The board hired Leanne Davis of Squirrel Hill, an attorney and former investigator for the Pittsburgh Human Relations Commission, to replace former manager Linda King, who resigned from the part-time position on April 25, according to the Mayor’s Office. Davis started in April and will be paid $63,758, according to the city budget.
The board handles complaints lodged against Pittsburgh elected officials and city employees involving issues such as conflicts of interest, nepotism and acceptance of gifts and is responsible for educating city employees about the Ethics Code. It has power to levy penalties ranging from public censure to a $1,000 fine for each code violation and can recommend that an employee be suspended or terminated.
