Lee sent the following letter to the board:

Dear CDA Board Members: 

It is with regret that I resign my position as Director of the Consolidated Dispatch Agency effective February 3rd, 2016.  It  has been my honor to serve as the director of the Consolidated Dispatch Agency for the last two years. Although the agency has experienced some challenges over the  last two years  I am confident that CDA will recover and go on to be stronger than ever before. 

While serving as the director I had the opportunity to see great things accomplished within the agency, unfortunately  the  highs came with a variety of lows.  I feel honored to consider each member of the CDA family as part of my family.   I will do everything in my power during my remaining days at CDA to complete unfinished tasks and promote the family aspect of public safety. With my departure I assure you that  I will assist to the best of my abilities the transition to a new director for the agency. 

The management of the CDA is  exceedingly fortunate to have the kind of dedicated staff that I have come to know and respect during my years  with the agency. The staff is committed to excellence and are fiercely loyal to the agency. Thank you again for an educational and highly rewarding two  years at the CDA.
