Top Ramsey supporter leaving UofL Foundation board
A leading supporter of former University of Louisville President James Ramsey is resigning his seat on the school’s foundation board.
The Courier-Journal reports that Dr. Bob Hughes sent a copy of his resignation letter to the newspaper on Tuesday.
Hughes, a physician who practices in Murray, remains on the school’s board of trustees.
He unsuccessfully fought to retain Ramsey as president of the university and foundation. Ramsey was forced to resign from both positions.
In the one-page letter, Hughes said it became "increasingly difficult" for him to watch the work of Ramsey and his top aides "attacked and halted to the detriment of the university." The letter was addressed to Brucie Moore, who succeeded him as foundation chairman after the board of trustees demanded changes in its leadership.
