Published 2:28 pm Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Andalusia attorney Tom Albritton was named executive director of the Alabama Ethics Commission today.

Albritton said he was exhausted by the process, but elated over the opportunity, and also anxious to get started.

Commission members voted after conducting public interviews of the two semi-finalists for the post in a selection process that began in September.

Albritton replaces Jim Sumner who retired Oct. 1, 2014, after 17 years at the helm. Former Cumberland Law School Dean John Carroll served as interim director.
