Statement from House Republican Leadership regarding resignation of Representative Dewayne Bunch
FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 26, 2011) - Over the course of the past several months, our thoughts and prayers have been with our colleague, State Representative Dewayne Bunch, as he has recovered from a tragic accident that took place in the course of his work as a teacher at Whitley County High School.
In the course of his recovery, his family has decided that it is best for not only him, but his constitutents as well if he resigns his seat in the Kentucky General Assembly. While we will miss serving with Dewayne, we understand this decision and want what is best for his recovery.
Dewayne has exemplified what it means to be a servant leader. Whether it was his service to our nation through the military, his service to the 82nd District as State Representative, or his service to the young people of Whitley County as an educator, Dewayne has time and again lived the type of life that can be an example to all of us.
