SAN DIEGO - The American Red Cross confirmed Friday that the former San Diego City Council President Tony Young is no longer the CEO of the local chapter.
Young, who served as a council member for southeastern San Diego communities for several years, resigned from his position as council president in November 2012 to join the Red Cross in January 2013.
On February 14, 2014, Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced his transition team, which included Young. During a phone call Friday afternoon to Faulconer’s chief of staff, 10News confirmed that Young is still the co-chairman of the transition committee, which consists of volunteers.
Meanwhile, the American Red Cross issued the following statement:
“We can confirm that Tony Young is no longer the CEO of the San Diego Imperial Counties chapter of the American Red Cross. Like many organizations the Red Cross considers personnel matters private and we do not comment on the reasons why someone has left the organization. Mr. Young has been the regional chapter CEO for approximately 14 months. We thank him for his service to the Red Cross and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
