CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The executive director of the West Virginia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has resigned, according to the organization's board president.
Brenda Lee Green submitted a letter of resignation on Saturday, Sara Bird said. The board accepted her resignation that day.
Green had served as executive director since March last year, Bird said. She took the position after Frank Crabtree retired.
"We regret that it didn't work out, and I look forward to moving the organization forward," Bird said. She did not talk about reasons for Green's departure but said, "It was time for a change in our management."
Green, who could not be reached for comment, previously served on the ACLU board of directors in Pennsylvania and had been the vice president of education with Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania.
"A voracious reader and First Amendment absolutist, Brenda joined the ACLU as a student and has maintained an active relationship with the organization for more than three decades -- as a member, donor, volunteer, board member and employee," the ACLU website states.
She was also the former executive director of a Philadelphia-based organization that advocates for uninsured and underinsured health-care consumers, according to the website.
