FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson says he won't pursue the presidency of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
Abramson on Monday told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/TZtXkQ ) the job isn't one that he's interested in right now. The former Louisville mayor has 18 months left on his term and says he hasn't made a decision about what will come once he leaves office.
KCTCS is searching for a successor to Michael McCall, who announced last year that he will retire Jan. 15, 2015, after 16 years of leading the system that oversees Kentucky's community and technical colleges.
Abramson said last August that he would not run for governor in 2015.
The 14-member KCTCS Board of Regents hopes to review finalists Sept. 18 and 19 and announce McCall's successor in October.
