Bill Drummond has resigned as administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration, bringing one piece of the agency's recent hiring scandal to a controversial resolution and prompting a push for the quick appointment of his successor.
Drummond is a well-respected utility executive in the Northwest, but spent only six months as administrator before being suspended amid allegations that BPA hiring practices were discriminating against veterans and that managers were retaliating against whistleblowers.

Drummond did not return The Oregonian's calls for comment.
