LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The controversy at Edison State College has convinced a trustee to quit.

Dr. David Klein of Port Charlotte confirmed to WINK News this afternoon that he has turned in his letter of resignation.

He was Vice Chair of the board of trustees, and would have become chairman later this year.

Doctor Klein says he is fed up with the mess at Edison, and fears it will hurt his reputation, to stay on as a college trustee.

Klein had tried to get the governor's office to investigate Edison; so far, he has not even gotten a phone call from Tallahassee.

Edison has been rocked by questions about pay for President Ken Walker, and the power that was given to Vice President James Browder.
