OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The executive director of the Oklahoma Ethics Commission plans to step down from his post by the end of June.

Executive Director Lee Slater confirmed Thursday he plans to announce his resignation during the commission’s regular meeting on Friday. The 72-year-old attorney says he intends to retire, although he says he may still practice some law.

Slater says he also intends to recommend his possible replacement as director, but he said Thursday it would be inappropriate to publicly identify that person ahead of the board meeting.

Slater has been executive director since May 2013. He previously operated a private law practice and served as secretary of the Oklahoma Senate and secretary of the Oklahoma State Election Board.
