Commission picks new administrator

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Ethics Commission has selected a Florida attorney as its new leader.

The commission announced Thursday it has appointed Daniel Carlton Jr. as interim administrator. He’ll serve out the remainder of a four-year term that expires in mid-2019. He’ll make $101,000 per year.

Carlton previously worked for the Florida Commission on Ethics. He’ll serve in an interim role pending state Senate confirmation.

Carlton replaces Interim Administrator Collette Reinke. She took over for Brian Bell, who stepped down in January after Republican senators voted against confirming him and state Elections Commission Administrator Michael Haas.
