RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) - Governor Bob McDonnell threatened a call for resignation of the entire UVa Board of Visitors if final action is not taken by June 27.
"But let me be absolutely clear: I want final action by the Board on Tuesday," McDonnell said. "If you fail to do so, I will ask for the resignation of the entire Board on Wednesday. Regardless of your decision, I expect you to make a clear, detailed and unified statement on the future leadership of the University."
McDonnell went on to describe his disappointment with the process of Teresa Sullivan's resignation.
"When arriving at its decision to ask for the resignation of President Sullivan, the Board of Visitors made procedural mistakes which its leaders have acknowledged, including a lack of transparency and a failure in communication," McDonnell wrote. "A vote to remove the President requiring two-thirds approval of the Board was not taken, and the multiple board meetings and the ensuing predictable press frenzy have created great uncertainty imperiling the University's ability to move forward."
