Dolly Williams is fined for her conflicted Yards vote
The Brooklyn Paper
by Dana Rubinstein
The Brooklyn Paper adds to the coverage of the $4,000 fine levied against former Planning Commissioner Dolly Williams. The fine comes as a result of a Conflict of Interest Board investigation done three years after a conflict-of-interest complaint was filed.
“I acknowledge that by voting on the Downtown Brooklyn Plan, which conferred a benefit on the Atlantic Yards project in which I was an investor … I violated [the law],” Williams said in a statement released on Tuesday.
The admission was a far cry from her assertion to The Brooklyn Paper in October that she had served her term with integrity.
