OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt’s secretary of education is the latest member of the governor’s cabinet to announce his resignation.

Secretary of State Michael Rogers told the governor this week that he plans to resign from his positions as both Stitt’s secretary of education and his chief policy negotiator. In a letter to Stitt on Wednesday, Rogers said he planned to continue working as Secretary of State. However he said trying to juggle all three positions was too time consuming.

Stitt announced this week that he had hired former state Senate leader Brian Bingman to be his top policy advisor.
