I’m sorry to announce that April 28th was Elaine Bozonelos’ last day with the Ethics Commission. For the past two years, Elaine served as a Customer Support Specialist and provided direct support to Form 700 filers. Elaine has been instrumental in establishing the Form 700 electronic filing program for designated departmental filers. She collaborated with IT staff to establish the Commission’s first online support portal and personally fielded hundreds of support requests. She also developed online documentation and video tutorials on how to use the Netfile system. Staff truly benefited from her expertise with Netfile and the Form 700 program and greatly appreciate all her contributions.
