U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara is heading to Albany next month to meet with the New York Conference of Mayors.

Bharara will attend NYCOM’s winter legislative meeting, scheduled for Feb. 8, at the Hilton Albany, less than a mile down the hill from the state Capitol.

Gannett’s Albany bureau first reported the news of Bharara’s planned visit.

Bharara has led the prosecutions of nearly a dozen political figures in New York, including the successful convictions of former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and ex-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver last year.

Bharara was initially invited to speak in Albany by Assembly Republicans, but the U.S. attorney turned them down. A spokesman for Minority Leader Brian Kolb indicated Bharara did not want to speak before a partisan foum.

Earlier this month, Bharara traveled to Kentucky to address state lawmakers, who where holding an ethics training session.
