Meet the new general counsel


Welcome to our new General Counsel, David J. State, who started this past April. A former assistant state attorney general, David was an administrative law judge with the New York State Office of Temporary Disability and a JAG Officer (Major) for the Trial Counsel, 42nd Infantry Division. An Iraq veteran, he served from May 2004 to Jan. 2006.

Howard A. Zemsky, committee chairman said, “I want to thank my fellow commissioners for their time and commitment through the entire vetting process. As a result of their combined efforts, we were able to unanimously agree on an extremely talented and well qualified individual.”

State holds faculty positions at the University of Buffalo where he teaches Urban Development Law and Policy and at Erie Community College where he instructs on Business Law I and II.
