Late last night, Robin Yess resigned her position as County Chair effective immediately. The announcement was made via e-mail.
Two things jump out at me. First, within 30 minutes of the release of the e-mail, copies were given to a Democrat blogger and a local news service. The e-mail was sent to the Town and City Chairmen and the Republican Legislators. It is disturbing to me that this information was made public barely after the ink dried on the letter.
Second, I found Robin's resignation letter to be unfortunate and unprofessional. There was no reason to attack the party and call people names. If she wished to resign, which was her privilege, she should have simply announced the resignation and thanked her supporters for the opportunity. By writing the letter (e-mail) in an aggressive and hostile manner, it only provides fodder for the party's adversaries and does nothing to aide or assist Holley Carnright and the candidates for the County Legislature.
