Patton Likely To Resign Chairmanship

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...Former Governor Paul Patton, who is currently University of Pikeville President, says he will likely resign as chairman of the council on post-secondary education to avoid a conflict of interest as he pushes for the state to add UPike to its university system. Wednesday, he and House Speaker Greg Stumbo, announced for the first time a proposal for the university to become the first college in more than 40 years to join the state system.
