Commissioners

The Ethics Commission is governed by five part-time commissioners, who serve staggered five-year terms. The mayor, the city attorney, the controller, the president of the city council, and the president pro tempore of the city council each appoint one member of the Ethics Commission. Each appointment must be confirmed by a majority of the city council.

The commissioners must be registered city voters. During their tenures, they may not hold any other public office; participate in or contribute to the election campaign of anyone who is running for city or Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education office; participate in or contribute to the election campaign of a city official or member of the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education who is running for any office; or employ or be employed as a city lobbyist.

The commissioners appoint an executive director, who hires the staff and manages the day-to-day operations. Final decisions regarding legislative recommendations and enforcement actions may be made only by the commissioners. The commissioners act at public meetings, and three votes are required to take any action.
