OKLAHOMA CITY - The assistant general counsel for the Oklahoma Bar Association will be the top attorney for the state Ethics Commission.
Commissioners voted 5-0 on Wednesday to hire Debbie Maddox as the agency's general counsel.
Maddox, of Oklahoma City, will succeed Rebecca Adams, who held the post for 21 years before she left the agency in November. Maddox, who will start her new duties in about two weeks, will be paid $96,000 a year.
She is the daughter of former state Sen. Jim Maddox, a Democrat from Lawton, who last served in the Legislature in 2004. Commissioners were unaware of her relationship with the former lawmaker until after she was hired, commission Chairman Jo Pettigrew said.
