LINCOLN — The Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission hired a long-time staffer Friday as its new executive director.

David Hunter, who has worked for the NADC since 2000, will succeed Frank Daley, who is resigning in September.

Daley joined the commission staff in 1987 and served as executive director since 1999.

Hunter, a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, currently is the commission’s deputy director.

There were 78 applicants for the job, and three finalists were interviewed by the commission on Friday. The job was advertised to pay between $105,000 and $110,000 a year.

The agency oversees and enforces the state’s campaign finance, lobbying and conflict of interest laws.
