Draud Announces Resignation From State House

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- State Representative Jon Draud has announced his resignation, days after the lawmaker was chosen to be Kentucky's next education commissioner.

A spokeswoman for House Speaker Jody Richards says the Republican from Edgewood submitted his resignation letter, effective Sunday, to House leadership.

The Kentucky Board of Education picked the 69-year-old Draud to hold the state's highest education job at a meeting on Sunday. He replaces former commissioner Gene Wilhoit, who left last year for a job in Washington D.C.

Draud was a member of the House since 1999.
