OKLAHOMA CITY - Robin Roberson has resigned as executive director of the state's unemployment agency.

Roberson submitted her resignation from the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission midday Friday after being encouraged to step down, she told The Oklahoman.

The commission's board met behind closed doors Friday to discuss hiring a new director, and they were planning to call a special meeting next week to replace her, Roberson said.

"I've been asked since last Tuesday to take extended leave until all this is over, and I can't just sit by and do that," Roberson said. "And I had five different phone calls yesterday encouraging me to do so before the (OESC) meeting this morning."
