Oklahoma's child welfare director will resign, calling it 'one of the most difficult jobs in state government'

Tulsa World - 5/16/2018

Oklahoma's director of child welfare services announced her resignation Tuesday, citing the stress of her job and the pressure of implementing a 2012 legal agreement.

Jami Ledoux has led the child welfare wing of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services for four years - three years as a director after one year as an interim director.

"The decision for me to leave at this time is one that is focused on the well-being of my family," she said in a news release. "This is difficult work, and the job of child welfare director is one of the most difficult jobs in state government."

Ledoux, whose resignation is effective May 31, specifically mentioned "the added stress and pressure" of a 2012 settlement agreement DHS entered into following a class-action civil rights lawsuit.
