NYC Ethics Board Fines Carrion

Thursday, December 01, 2011

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regional coordinator and former Bronx borough president Adolfo Carrion has been fined $10,000 after an architect who helped him on a home project later benefited from a development deal Carrion approved.

Carrion agreed to the settlement with the New York City Conflicts of Interest Board.

Under the settlement made public Thursday, Carrion conceded he hired architect Hugo Subotovsky in 2006 and didn't pay him for his work until after the Daily News contacted him about the project in 2009.

Carrion said he didn't know the architect was involved in a development project he would have to approve. He added the architect didn't bill him immediately because the work wasn't finished.

Carrion was Bronx borough president from January 2002 to February 2009.
