AUSTIN – The chief of staff to the director of Texas’ state health agency became the third official to resign amid a no-bid contract scandal Thursday, while two Houston lawmakers called on her boss to step down himself.
The chief of staff, Erica Stick, who last month was put on paid leave pending a criminal probe of a deal that already had claimed the job of her husband, former agency general counsel Jack Stick, said in a resignation letter that she would leave office Feb. 6.
Attention already had shifted higher, however, to Kyle Janek, a former Houston state senator appointed by Gov. Rick Perry in 2012 to lead the sprawling Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
