DescriptionSenate President David Williams wants Lt. Gov.-elect Daniel Mongiardo to resign immediately from the state Senate.

But Mongiardo says he is staying on as a senator until he officially is sworn in as lieutenant governor on Dec. 11.

Williams, R-Burkesville, released a letter yesterday he sent Nov. 9 to the Democrat from Hazard, saying Mongiardo's immediate resignation would ensure that residents of his 30th Senate District would have a state senator to prepare for the legislative session that begins Jan. 8.

Mongiardo, who is to be sworn in with Gov.-elect Steve Beshear, sent a letter late yesterday to Williams, saying he will stay in the legislature until Inauguration Day.

"At that point I will resign my seat and it will be the responsibility of the governor to set a date for a special election and I'm sure he will do so promptly."
