The New York State Assembly's efforts to clean up corruption in state government are noble, but don't go far enough, according to a Brooklyn lawmaker who has been calling for major ethics reforms in Albany since she was first elected in 2010. Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis reacted positively to a series of reforms recently approved by the Democratic-dominated Assembly that included limits on lawmakers' outside income, prohibiting payments for referrals when no services are rendered and closing the limited liability company loophole that allowed elected officials to skirt campaign finance rules.

A Brooklyn activist group's idea of turning the city's 59 community boards into elected bodies with real power would just result in expensive elections for panels that would use their clout to veto any changes to their neighborhoods, says a former board member turned councilman. "You can't give community boards power because nothing would get done," said former Community Board 18 member and current Councilman Alan Maisel , slamming recent demands from a coalition called the Brooklyn Anti-Gentrification Network, which includes tenant groups and social justice organizations from Sunset Park, Flatbush, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, and Bushwick.
