OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A member of Gov. Mary Fallin’s cabinet has announced plans to resign.

Fallin announced Tuesday that Secretary of Education and Workforce Development Robert Sommers will step down on Aug. 15. Sommers will also resign as director of the Oklahoma Department of Career Technology Education.

Sommers said he is stepping down in order to spend more time with his family in Ohio.

Sommers has served as Fallin’s top education adviser since July 2013 when he was named to replace Education Secretary Phyllis Hudecki following Hudecki’s resignation.
