WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE: GOLDMARK ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION

 OLYMPIA, Wash., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter J. Goldmark has announced his resignation as director of agriculture, according to the Washington State Department of Agriculture. Goldmark said the reasons for his decision were entirely personal. Gov. Lowry received and accepted the resignation, effective June 10.
 "It is not possible for me to fulfill the requirements of this important and demanding job in state government and still meet the needs of my family," said Goldmark. "Having to choose, I must choose my family."
 Goldmark, 46, and his wife, Georgia, own a 6,000-acre wheat and cattle operation in Okanogan County. Since his appointment in February, Goldmark has commuted by private plane to Olympia each week to carry out his duties as director, returning to the family ranch on weekends.
 "Public service is very demanding. Although we will miss Peter's expertise and leadership, I respect and agree with his priorities. Your family always comes first," said Gov. Lowry.
 Acting Deputy Director John King will serve as acting director of agriculture during the search for a replacement.
