ND Gov. Names Tony Weiler New Labor Commissioner

                               Bismarck, ND (CompNewsNetwork) - Gov. John Hoeven today named Tony Weiler to head the North Dakota Department of Labor effective September 7. Weiler replaces current Commissioner Lisa Fair McEvers, who was appointed by Hoeven in May to serve on the East Central Judicial District Court, chambered in Fargo.

“I want to thank Lisa for her years of service to the Department of Labor and for the outstanding work she has done in overseeing the enforcement of the state's labor and human rights laws,” said Hoeven. “She will do a great job for the citizens of the East Central Judicial District, and we wish her well in her new position.”

Weiler has been an attorney with the Maring Williams Law Office in Bismarck since 2002, where he focused on personal injury, business and corporate law. Prior to that, he served as a general practice attorney with the Wheeler Wolf Law Firm in Bismarck and worked as a labor standards inspector with the state Labor Department, charged with wage and hour law enforcement.

“Tony will be a great asset for the Department of Labor and will serve the people of North Dakota with professionalism and distinction,” said Hoeven. “His broad legal experience will provide a strong foundation as he works to protect the rights of North Dakota's citizens.”

A native of Fort Yates, Weiler attended the University of North Dakota School of Law and graduated with honors, receiving a Juris Doctor in 1998. Following law school, he served as a law clerk for the Hon. Dale Sandstrom with the North Dakota Supreme Court.

Weiler served as president of the Big Muddy Bar Association in 2007, and has been active in various civic organizations, including the Bismarck Rotary Club, Dakota Junior Golf, the Downtowners Association and the Knights of Columbus.

“I am looking forward to serving on the Governor's cabinet and appreciate this opportunity to serve the citizens of North Dakota,” said Weiler.
