Longtime Oklahoma Ethics Commission workers are honored
A reception was held Thursday for Oklahoma Ethics Commission's longtime executive director, general counsel and investigator, who are leaving the agency at the end of November.
The woman who has headed the state Ethics Commission for 25 years — all but the first six months of its existence — plans to give more attention to her lawn.

Marilyn Hughes said she doesn't have any plans for the next three months after she leaves the agency Nov. 30.
“I'm going to take a tree out of my front yard, put in a sprinkler system to save the lawn and stuff like that — things I haven't had time for,” Hughes said.
Hughes, 63, and two other longtime employees of the agency were honored Thursday during a reception. Their departure will leave two employees in the agency, which writes civil penalty rules governing state campaigns and the conduct of state officers and employees.
In addition to Hughes, Rebecca Adams, 62, the Ethics Commission's general counsel for the past 21 years, and Darey Roberts, 72, the agency's investigator for 17 years, also are leaving Nov. 30.
Each received a plaque and a gift from the commission and a commendation from Gov. Mary Fallin. Commissioners personally paid for the items and refreshments served at the reception.
