Governor Fletcher's Communications Director Resigns

Frankfort, KY – Aides to Governor Fletcher say Communications
Director Wes Irvin has stepped down from his job.
Press Secretary Jason Keller says Wes Irvin
returned to his native state of Virginia to spend time
with his family.

Irvin had been singled out for criticism last week
by House Speaker Jody Richards and House Majority
Leader Rocky Adkins. The criticism was for Irvin's
statement that Representative Harry Moberly of
Richmond "should show up for work."

Keller and Press Secretary Jeannie Lausche said Irvin's
departure was unrelated to the criticism. Lausche also
said Irvin was not asked to leave ---- and was not
criticized by others in the Administration.
