Republican Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb told the New York Conference of Mayors that ethics reform needs to be a top priority in the Legislature this session.

Ditto for the Democratic Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who said the parade of corruption scandals was causing people to lose faith in the state.

But the representatives of the legislative majorities in Albany chose not to address ethics concerns when speaking before U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara at the group’s winter meeting in Albany on Monday.

Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle, representing the Democratic conference in the Assembly, stood in for Speaker Carl Heastie.

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan bolted from the room after addressing the group to discuss local government issues and the state’s property tax cap.

“He’s making a lot of speeches all over the place and this should be no different,” Flanagan said when asked about Bharara’s presence in Albany.

As reporters pursued Flanagan up a winding flight of stairs at the Albany Hilton, the Suffolk County lawmaker was asked about whether he believed Bharara’s corruptioncase against his predecessor, Dean Skelos, was justified.

Flanagan responded: “I have faith in the court system and I’m guided by that all the time.”

He didn’t address additional questions when asked about whether ethics legislation should be in the budget.
