Mayor Robert Palmieri will appoint Mark Curley as Utica's Corporation Counsel.
"He has an extraordinary background and is respected throughout the legal and judicial community. Mark is an accomplished court room lawyer whose skills as a criminal attorney will prove indispensable as my administration strives to bring transparency and trust back to City Hall," said Palmieri.
Curley graduated from law school at the University of Texas at Austin. He is a 1982 graduate of SUNYIT where he developed software applications before getting into law.
"I am sincerely grateful to Mayor Palmieri for showing confidence in me. I share the Mayor's absolute commitment to honest, effective government and I will serve the people of Utica to the best of my ability," said Curley.
