To the Honorable David A. Paterson and Members of the Legislature:

On behalf of the Commissioners and staff of the New York State Commission on Public Integrity, I am pleased to present you with this 2009 Annual Report.

This report includes descriptions of the Commission's training activities, enforcement efforts, investigations and advisory opinions, as well as the legislative proposals for the current year. The report also notes the decrease in spending by lobbyists last year.

The Commission, like other State agencies, has had to perform its work with an increasingly restrictive budget, leading to cutbacks in personnel, travel and other expenditures. We have adjusted to these fiscal realities while continuing to fulfill our responsibilities as required by law. The Commission could not have successfully performed its work and met its challenges without the dedication and skill of its staff.

Respectfully,

Signature, Barry Ginsberg
