Doctoroff Remains on Boards
March 25th, 2008

The city’s Conflicts of Interest Board has just confirmed former deputy mayor for economic development turned president of Bloomberg L.P. can continue to sit on both the boards of the Governor’s Island Preservation and Education Corporation and the Hudson River Park Trust.

Daniel Doctoroff was also granted a waiver to remain as a consultant on some of the major development projects he has spearheaded, including Moynihan Station, PlaNYC 2030 and Queens West.

The board had confirmed some of this in December when Doctoroff announced he would be leaving Bloomberg’s administration for Bloomberg’s mega-company. The supplemental opinion confirmed that he could also sit on several boards because they are uncompensated positions and also that he could continue to act as a consultant, as long as he recused himself from certain real estate negotiations at Bloomberg L.P.
