MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Jon Mason, the husband of the woman accused of having an affair with former Gov. Bentley, has been fired by the State of Alabama.
In her first day in office, new Governor Kay Ivey let Mason go from his position as the Director of Serve Alabama, which is a state agency under the governor’s office that handles faith-based and volunteer services.
Mason was appointed by Gov. Bentley during his last term but after his historic resignation Monday, Mason was let go.
Mason is a former television meteorologist who was making more than $90,000 a year in the state job.
This is expected to be the first of many staff changes under Ivey. Many positions under review and those reviews began Tuesday.
