Former lawmaker given role in governor's office

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Steve Beshear has appointed a former state lawmaker to be director of his office's legislative services.

Beshear says his choice, Roger Thomas, has experience and knowledge of the legislative process that's "second to none." He says Thomas' understanding of the General Assembly will be vital to achieve a successful legislative session next year.

Beshear's office says Thomas will retain his position as executive director of the Governor's Office of Agricultural Policy. In that role, Thomas serves as CEO of the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board and executive director of the Kentucky Agricultural Finance Corporation.

Thomas was as the state representative for the 21st District from 1996 to 2004.
