Katherine O'Neill resigns from PC board

The number of recent resignations from the Progressive Conservative party board has reached six.

Katherine O'Neill, who stepped down as president last month, has resigned her membership on the board of directors.

However, O'Neill said Thursday that she had always intended to leave the board at the same time as she relinquished the presidency.

"There must have been a misunderstanding that I would stay on as past president," she said in a text message. "Just closing the loop."

O'Neill remained listed as a member of the board as a past president on the party's website on Thursday, and the party's executive director said this week she remained a board member.

Since Jason Kenney won the PC leadership in March on a platform of unifying the PCs and Wildrose, board members Connor Turner, Kim Krushell, Stephanie Shostak, Bud James and Jordan Lien have resigned their positions.

Some of those who stepped down have cited their disagreement with the party's direction under Kenney as the reason for their resignations. O'Neill has said previously that Kenney's victory did not prompt her decision to resign as president.

There are currently 34 members on the PC board.
