State Treasurer Jonathan Miller resigned from the office of State Treasurer today. Governor Steve Beshear appointed State Treasurer Elect Todd Hollenbach Jr. to serve the remainder of Miller's term. Hollenbach was sworn in shortly after noon today. Miller resigned his post to begin serving the Beshear Administration as Secretary of Finance.
Hollenbach had been working with the Beshear Administration regarding this situation so that Miller could go ahead and make the transition from State Treasurer to Finance Secretary. A member of Hollenbach's campaign team reported this afternoon that Hollenbach was eager and excited to go ahead and start his administration. Hollenbach is expected to begin focusing on his platform of financial literacy.
