23 apply to be administrator of state Ethics Commission
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Twenty three people from six different states and South Africa have applied to be the first administrator of Wisconsin's new Ethics Commission.
The names and hometowns of the applicants were released by the Government Accountability Board on Thursday. The commission officially begins its work on June 30, one of two new commissions replacing the GAB.
Among the applicants were Paul Dauphinais, the head of Alaska's Public Offices Commission and Bre Injeski, deputy director of New York City's Conflict of Interest Board.
Tim Samuelson, assistant Attorney General with the Wisconsin Department of Justice who heads the Medicaid fraud and elder abuse unit, also applied.
No background information or resumes were released along with the names and hometowns.
The administrator will serve a four-year term and must be approved by the Senate.
