The Capital Chapter did not mention Agosini being fired or a decision by him to quit. The board says the decision comes from much discussion about community concerns of the Capital Chapter's ability to respond to disaster. Board members and volunteers who have returned from resignation say this is not about Floyd, it's about their service to the community. The board also says it's time for the the chapter to work as a whole with volunteers.

Gregg Patterson, who led the tream assessing the the local chapter said, "We've been doing a lot of listening to our volunteers. I mean, those are the folks that are on the ground, their the ones that make the Red Cross happen and there was a lot devices in this and many camps in our chapter and it was time for that to change."

Some of those changes will include an interim CEO for the time being and they say a search has started for a new director of Disaster Services. Many community leaders were at the announcement in support of the direction the local chapter Red Cross is going.

    The only way to fix this place is to get rid of ALL the staff and the board of directors and start fresh. This place is a joke anyway. Only the volunteers have kept it afloat.

    Heal the division. Bring Chris Floyd back and hope we can all put this behind us.
