Executive Director of the North Dakota Ethics Commission Working on Ethics Rules
David Thiele became the Executive Director of the newly formed Ethics Commission at the beginning of the year and chaired the first meeting of the commission January 22.
Thiele, a Bismarck resident and former judge advocate for the U.S. Army, said his background as an attorney and ethics counselor for the National Guard will help him establish ethics rules.
State law gives the commission nine months from its creation (April 2020) to take preliminary steps to create the new rules.
Thiele believes he can meet this goal, but noted the Commission will give members of the public a chance to comment and could ask for an extension, if necessary.
