Heritage Foundation President Kay Cole James Resigns

Kay Cole James, president of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank, is resigning from her position, she announced in a letter on Monday.

News of her resignation was first reported by RealClearPolitics White House reporter Philip Melanchthon Wegmann.

“Leading an organization that has contributed so much to the policy dialogue in this country and educated so many individuals across the globe has been an honor of a lifetime,” James wrote in a letter to friends and family obtained by Wegmann.

The Heritage Foundation later released a press release announcing James’s resignation along with that of Executive Vice President Kim R. Holmes. Holmes’s resignation is effective on April 16.

Though she is resigning, she will remain a part of the organization’s board of trustees, a role she has held since 2005.
