Islander named to state ethics panel
Harsch is one of two attorneys named to fill vacancies on the commission this week by Governor Donald Carcieri.
"This is a tremendous honor. I am very flattered," Harsch told the Jamestown Press. "The Ethics Commission plays an important role in enforcing standards of behavior for public officials in this state."
Harsch, a Republican, is a former town solicitor for Jamestown and Tiverton. He made unsuccessful bids for state attorney general in 2002 and 2006.
