“As Buffalo’s public integrity officer, Rose McMorrow will give everyday citizens a place to take complaints where they know they can and will be examined without fear or favor,” Schneiderman says.
The initiative is part of a sweeping plan “to restore confidence in the public sector.” Similar officers are being installed at the A.G.’s regional offices in Binghamton, Long Island, Plattsburgh, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown and Westchester.
“From town halls to the state capital, it is essential to bring both a ‘top down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approach to reforming our state and giving taxpayers the government they deserve. We must clean up Albany, but we must also root out possible corruption hidden in the nooks and crannies of local governments and special districts,” Schneiderman said.
If you’d like to report government corruption, call Ms. McMorrow at the Attorney General’s Buffalo Regional Office at: (716) 853-8400.
