Vice Rector Mark Kington's resignation letter

Below is a transcribed version of the resignation letter Vice Rector Mark Kington sent to Gov. Bob McDonnell today:

Dear Governor McDonnell:

It has been a great honor to serve on the Board of Visitors of the University of Virginia, and I am deeply grateful to you for giving me that opportunity.

In order to better serve this university which I love and respect, and to help bring about new leadership on the Board of Visitors at this critical time, I am resigning my position as Vice Rector and as a board member effective immediately. I believe that this is the right thing to do and I hope that it will begin a needed healing process at the university.

Thank you for allowing me to serve.


Mark J. Kington
