FRANKFORT – Governor Matt Bevin is using an executive order to remove an appointee, but this time he is dismissing one of his own. Steven Edwards was appointed five months ago as the Commissioner of the Alcoholic Beverage Control.
Bevin says that he filed the executive order to remove Edwards from the position on Monday because he had “lost confidence” in his ability to lead.
Edwards was announced as the replacement for the previous commissioner in March, when Freddie Higdon resigned from the post. Bevin confirmed Edwards’ appointment through an executive order in June.
