Montana Commissioner Steps Down
Montana’s Commissioner of Political Practices, Jeff Mangan, has announced his retirement, effective November 7.
During his almost six-year tenure, Mangan was celebrated by Republicans and Democrats alike for his nonpartisan approach to the role.
Before leaving office, Mangan is focusing on shoring up protections for election officials in response to the uptick of hostility towards the country’s election integrity.
Mangan stated his reason for stepping down early was to return to the private sector.
Gov. Greg Gianforte will select the next commissioner from a shortlist submitted to him by lawmakers.
