Georgia Ethics Commission Chooses LaBerge as New Executive Secretary
LaBerge, a former Budget Analyst for the House Budget Office and Director of Government Relations for the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council, beat out Jerry R. Presley, a former lobbyist, government official, and private consultant, for the position.
The commission interviewed each candidate at its meeting Friday before meeting in private to make a decision.
LaBerge takes over for Stacey Kalberman, who left the commission over disputes concerning the agency’s budget and her request for subpoenas to investigate Governor Nathan Deal’s campaign.
