FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The head of the Kentucky Executive Branch Ethics Commission is moving to the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, where he will fill the top post.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1HNkToK ) reports 48-year-old John R. Steffen of Georgetown will leave the ethics commission in mid-May to become executive director of the registry.

He is replacing Sarah M. Jackson, who retired last fall.

The ethics commission is scheduled to meet May 4. It will determine who will replace Steffen.

Steffen’s annual salary at the ethics commission is $97,488. Jackson’s salary when she left the registry was $121,182.

The ethics commission oversees ethical standards that govern the conduct of executive branch employees. The registry administers Kentucky’s campaign finance laws and ensures public access to campaign financial data and reports.
