Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is one step closer to throwing his hat into the 2016 presidential race after resigning from all of his corporate and nonprofit board memberships on New Year’s Eve.
In an email sent from a Bush aide to the Washington Post on Wednesday, the former governor is said to have resigned from his own education foundation, as well a lucrative for-profit education firm that sells online courses to public university students in exchange for a share of their tuition payments.
On Monday, Bush also said he was resigning from the board of real estate investment trust Rayonier Inc. That move followed an announcement last week, in which the former governor said he would resign from the board of Tenet Healthcare Corporation by December 31. He further said he would be stepping down from his advisory role at the UK banking and finance multinational Barclays.
The aide told the Post all the resignations had been made “effective today.”
