Gov. Sam Brownback has reappointed a retired Washburn University professor as chairman of the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission.

Daniel Harden has served on the commission since 2011, and Brownback appointed him Wednesday to another two-year term. The commission enforces the state's lobbying, campaign finance and conflict-of-interest laws.

Harden is a Meriden resident who taught at Washburn in Topeka for more than two decades, starting in 1987.

He's taught graduate courses in leadership, law and education and has served on his local school board. He also is a former high school teacher and public school principal.

The governor appoints two of the commission's nine members. Others are appointed by legislative leaders, the attorney general, secretary of state and the Kansas Supreme Court's chief justice.
