Alabama State University trustee resigns from post
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama State University trustee has stepped down from his post.
Board of Trustees Chairman Elton Dean tells the Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/10OObev) Birmingham doctor Lawrence Lemak stepped down from his position for health-related reasons. Dean says Lemak has been sick for an extended period of time and has not been to a meeting in months.
Lemak was targeted in an Alabama Ethics Commission complaint by a former ASU employee who accused him of violating university bylaws when the National Center for Sports Safety — a nonprofit his son was involved in — was given more than $1.5 million from the school in 2011 and 2012.
Lemak denied any wrongdoing and said he never voted on any matters associated with the group.
