Attorney Samantha L. Segal has been named to the $101,242-a-year post of executive director of Suffolk County’s overhauled ethics board.
Segal, 35, a Centerport resident, comes to the job after working as a New York City administrative law judge for the Environmental Control Board and the state division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, where she presided over more than 5,000 hearings for 14 agencies. She also served in quality assurance review for the Environmental Control Board. Segal started work last month.
The new five-member ethics commission is now headquartered in an office in Yaphank rather than the county attorney’s office, where it had been previously been housed, in part, to give it independence from the executive and legislative branches.
