Fallin Cabinet Down Three Since May With Latest Resignation

State of Oklahoma

Gov. Mary Fallin's Secretary of Education Phyllis Hudecki is the latest member of the governor's cabinet to announce her resignation, becoming the third to step down in as many months.

Fallin's office announced Tuesday that Hudecki planned to resign her post effective July 15 so that she could resume full-time duties as head of the Oklahoma Business and Education Coalition. Hudecki had been serving part-time as an OBEC executive while she served on the governor's cabinet.

She is the third member of Fallin's cabinet to step down since May. Energy Secretary Michael Ming left for a job in the private sector in May, and Secretary of the Environment Gary Sherrer resigned last month after Fallin said she planned to consolidate the energy and environmental posts into one cabinet position.
