Larry Walker has been a municipal court judge, a state lawmaker, a state transportation board member and, most recently, a member of the Georgia Board of Regents.
Walker, 75, is looking to add another title to his long resume: retired.
Walker said in a telephone interview Wednesday he will resign at the end of the year from the Board of Regents, which oversees the University System of Georgia’s 28 public colleges and universities.
Walker said he submitted a resignation letter to Gov. Nathan Deal, thanking him for the opportunity to serve. Deal has the authority under state to name Walker’s replacement.
