A state school board member has resigned amid ethical questions. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles has details.

Lawmakers and people who work at the Ohio Statehouse know Bryan Williams as a former lawmaker who also works as a lobbyist for the Associated Builders and Contractors of Ohio. He’s also been serving as a member on the state’s board of education.

But questions have been raised about whether his work as a lobbyist violated Ohio’s ethics laws.

An Ohio Ethics Commission advisory says elected members of a state board may not be registered lobbyists. 

So Williams has submitted his resignation to state school board president Debe Terhar. The resignation is effective immediately. A new board member is expected to be chosen to replace Williams soon.
