A city official is set to be part of the state's ethics board.

NY1 has learned that LaShann DeArcy will be appointed to the Joint Commission On Public Ethics.

A member of the city's Taxi and Limosine Commission, DeArcy is an accomplished attorney and graduate of Harvard Law School.

She will be replacing attorney Ravi Batra, who was an outspoken critic of the Commission.

Batra stepped down last month amid the Vito Lopez scandal, when he said the panel was tainted.

The Commission was set up by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to weed out corruption and increase transparency in government.
