W.Va. Ethics Panel Interviews Director Candidates

More than a dozen people have applied to become the next executive director of the West Virginia Ethics Commission.

Commissioner Betty Ireland is chairwoman of the commission's personnel committee. She tells The Charleston Gazette that the committee is interviewing 15 applicants.

Ireland says the applicants have a wide variety of legal experience and backgrounds. She says some are living out of state and want to return to West Virginia.

State law requires the executive director to be a lawyer and a member of the West Virginia bar for at least five years.

The commission fired former executive director Joan Parker on June 5. Charleston attorney Rebecca Stepto has been serving as interim executive director.
