Ethics commission seeks new leader

The state ethics commission is accepting applications for its third executive director in four years.

The agency, formally known as the Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, has been without an executive director since Holly LaBerge was fired in September as the commission was roiled by lawsuits and controversy.

According to the job posting on the commission’s website, the preferred candidate will be a lawyer licensed in Georgia with at least 10 years experience in government, management or “a complex legal field.”

A statement on the website says “due to the volume of applications received,” staff are unable to provide information on individual applications.

The job posting does not specify a salary.
