Orange County Judge Stephen Brint Carlton resigning
BREAKING: Orange County Judge Stephen Brint Carlton is resigning.
He's accepted an appointment as the chief executive director of the Texas Medical Board.
Judge Carlton tells KFDM/Fox 4 that he's resigning effective April 22.
The incumbent county judge lost the March Republican Primary, so he would have left office at the end of the year.
But since he's resigning early, county commissioners will meet Tuesday to appoint a replacement to fill Judge Carlton's unexpired term.
