2 agency heads to leave Pence administration

INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Mike Pence is losing two agency heads only a few months into his new administration.

Rob Carter, head of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, has asked the Indiana State Ethics Commission to issue a formal advisory opinion on whether he can accept a position at Ivy Tech Community College.

And Robert Wynkoop apparently left his post as Indiana Department of Administration commissioner in March. He is now asking the commission to approve a position as managing director at Purdue University that he started several weeks ago.

Pence tapped both men to remain in their positions back in December.

The ethics commission will hear the requests at a meeting Thursday, as well as one from Joseph Wainscott, former head of the Indiana Department of Homeland Security.
