    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - Jamie Allard of Eagle River and Kyle Foster of Anchorage were appointed this week.

    Allard replaced Marcus Sanders and Foster replaced David Barton on the state human rights commission.

    Governor Mike Dunleavy spokesman Matt Shuckerow said Barton resigned last week to be considered for the commission's executive director position.  Barton had been the only commission member whose service predated the Dunleavy administration.

    Sanders was recently appointed to a suicide prevention council.

    It has been an eventful year for the commission.  The former executive director Marti Buscaglia resigned in April after calling out on social media a "Black Rifles Matter' sticker on a truck parked in the commission's lot she considered racist.

    Her successor Marilyn Stewart was fired in July after less than a month on the job.
