Gov. John Bel Edwards confirmed in an emailed statement last night the resignation of Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Secretary Charlie Melancon, but a spokesman for the governor said the embattled agency head isn't leaving just yet.
"Secretary Melancon is not stepping down immediately," Richard Carbo, Edwards' communications director, told LouisianaSportsman.com via email this morning. "He will remain on while the governor conducts the search (for a successor)."
