THE MPC -- REACHING OUT TO OUR COMMUNITY AT THE 2018 ALBANY TULIP FESTIVAL

ETHICAL DILEMMAS?

What Would You Do?

and The Center for Ethical Governance

Roundtable  and Public Forum on Corruption featuring (clockwise from upper left) Frank Anechiarico, Maynard-Knox Professor of Government and Law, Hamilton College; Blair Horner, Executive Director, New York Public Interest Research Group; Zephyr Teachout, Associate Professor of Law, Fordham University, and Jimmy Vielkind, POLITICO, New York's Albany Bureau Chief.

"...a museum that would not only detail Albany's many political scandals but also offer some possible solutions to corruption."

 

"INGENIOUS!"

On November 29th, The Museum of Political Corruption and its Center for Ethical Governance hosted its 2nd annual Nellie Bly Award for Investigative Reporting. This year, the MPC honored Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of the New York Times for their groundbreaking reporting on the #MeToo movement. The evening included an elegant reception followed by an engaging roundtable discussion.


Panelists for this year's discussion included: Barbara Bartoletti, former Legislative Director for the League of Women Voters of New York State, Sarah J. Burger, Founding Member, Burger Law Group PLCC, Assemblymember Patricia A. Fahy, Alexis Grenell co-founder of Pythia Public, Rabbi Nomi Manon, Executive Director of UAlbany Hillel, and Donna Young, President William McKinley Distinguished Professor of Law and Public Policy at Albany Law School.   


The Honorable Joanne Dittes Yepsen, former Mayor of Saratoga Springs, served as the panel moderator.


The event was attended by over one hundred distinguished leaders, members of the press and members of the Capital District community.  


the selection process is underway for our 3rd annual Nellie Bly Award winner to be announced on May 5th, 2019! 
 

"...an idea whose time has come. If I were passing through Albany, I'd visit, that's for sure!"

Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the hit Broadway musical HAMILTON, references us on page 137 in his book on Hamilton!
