AUGUSTA, Maine—The Maine Human Rights Commission is getting a new executive director.

Amy Sneirson's first day on the job will be Jan. 3. She replaces Patricia Ryan, who retired in June after 32 years at the helm.

Sneirson is a lawyer who has worked at the Maine Center of Deafness since 2006. She previously worked with the Portland law firm of Murray, Plumb and Murray.

The commission is an independent state agency that enforces Maine's anti-discrimination law, the Maine Human Rights Act.
