State Architects Board's Executive Director Resigns

April 16, 2006 - Posted at 11:51 a.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ An audit of the state Board of Architects

isn't finished yet, but it's already had one effect. John D-

Harris, executive director of the board, has resigned after

preliminary results of the state audit raised significant

questions.

Blake Dunn, president of the board, said the panel had a meeting

planned in February at which Harris's employment would be discussed

when Dunn got a call from Harris's lawyer. Dunn said that, in the

call, the lawyer said Harris planned to resign.

Harris's lawyer, Beth Coulson, said there's another side to the

story. She said members of the board charged pricey meals on

Harris's credit cards, and then failed to reimburse him. She said

Harris is trying to reach an amicable agreement with the board.
