Governor Announces Ethics Commission Appointments


The West Virginia Ethics Commission has been reconstituted with fewer members. But most of them are familiar faces.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin reappointed seven members to the commission on Monday. The governor also named two new members, Karen Disibbio of Bluefield and Larry Tweel of Huntington.
A law approved this year by the Legislature reduced the commission’s members from 12 to nine.
Members who were reappointed are: former State Police superintendent and state Sen. Jack Buckalew, Morgantown lawyer Monte Williams, former Delegate Terry Walker of Shepherdstown, former Secretary of State Betty Ireland, former Logan County school board member Robert Wolfe, Michael Greer of Salem and Suzan Singleton of Glen Dale.

Greer was one of the Ethics Commission’s original members in 1989.
