Sullivan was mentioned in the article “Walsh preps ZBA reform as Boston ex-zoning official to be sentenced for bribes,” which was published in the Boston Herald on January 24, 2020.
The article discusses Mayor Walsh’s intent to begin implementing reforms aimed at restoring public trust in the Boston Zoning Board of Appeals following a series of scandals last year. These changes will include more stringent standards around conflicts of interest, new rules governing business dealings before, during and after projects are considered and approved by the ZBA and will also require financial and ethical disclosures by board members and certain applicants. The short-term and long-term reforms will follow the release of the independent review of ZBA procedures and practices completed by Sullivan, which will be made public in the coming days.
