Pa. Inspector General Resigns to Take New Job

Commenwealth of Pennsylvania

Kenya Mann Faulkner is leaving her Pennsylvania Inspector General post to work as general counsel for the University of Cincinnati.

Pennsylvania's inspector general is resigning from her post in Gov. Tom Corbett's Cabinet to take a new job in Ohio.

The governor's office announced the resignation of Kenya Mann Faulkner on Monday and said she's accepted the position of general counsel at the University of Cincinnati.

"I appreciate Gov. Corbett’s confidence and trust in appointing me to this position," Faulkner said in a press release announcing the move. "I also want to thank all the dedicated employees of the Office of Inspector General for their hard work and support."

In the release, Corbett thanked Faulkner for her "unwavering commitment" to her office and also his administration.

During her more than two years as inspector general, the 45-year-old Faulkner has been responsible for ensuring integrity and accountability in public programs, employees and contracts. Among other initiatives, she began publicly releasing the names of people convicted of welfare fraud.

The Ambler resident is expected to remain in her state job through March 29.
