Kinder quits federal post on Delta Regional Authority, bows out of politics

CAPE GIRARDEAU Former Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder has resigned from a leadership position on the Delta Regional Authority, a federal agency focused on economic development in Mississippi Delta region, including the Missouri Bootheel.

Kinder said he concluded his position was not needed and a waste of tax dollars, the Southeast Missourian reported Saturday.

President Donald Trump named Kinder as alternative federal co-chairman of the DRA in August 2017. He resigned June 1, but didn't publicly disclosed his resignation until Friday, the newspaper said.

The DRA, modeled on the Appalachian Regional Commission, was created by Congress in 2000.

The article indicates that he has no plans to return to politics..... we will see?
