FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The director of the bipartisan agency responsible for administering Kentucky’s campaign finance laws will retire three days before the Nov. 4 election.

The Kentucky Registry of Election Finance said in a news release Thursday that Sarah M. Jackson will retire on Nov. 1 as the agency’s executive director. The 57-year-old has been the agency’s executive director since 1999.

The registry appointed budget analyst Rebecca Feland as the interim executive director. Registry Chairman Craig C. Dilger said a search for Jackson’s replacement will take several months.

During her tenure, Jackson oversaw the development of an online searchable database for campaign finance data and created an online training tutorial for candidates and committees. She was president of the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws in 2009.
