Oklahoma secretary of state resigns, stays on staff
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Secretary of State Michael Rogers is resigning from Gov. Kevin Stitt’s cabinet, the governor’s office announced on Monday.
Rogers, a former state legislator, also has been serving as secretary of Native American affairs after former state Rep. Lisa Billy resigned last year following a disagreement with Stitt over tribal gambling compacts.
According to a press release from Stitt’s office, Rogers will continue working in Stitt’s administration as a special adviser to the governor.
“I am grateful he will advise our team and ensure a smooth transition as we prepare for next session,” Stitt said in the release.
