Jimmy Carter resigns from Carter Center

Atlanta, GA, Mar. 23 (UPI) -- Jimmy Carter has announced he and his wife have stepped down as leaders of the Atlanta-based Carter Center's board of trustees.

The former president said he and Rosalynn Carter will continue promoting peace, health, democracy, and advocating for the mentally ill as board members, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday. The former president said he and his wife stepped down to allow the board to play "a more prominent role in the governance and long-term mission of the center."

"Rosalynn and I see this as part of the ongoing process of preparing the Carter Center for the time when we no longer are active," Carter said in a statement. "As its founders, we know the Carter Center will always be linked to our identity and personalities, but we proudly recognize the center has expanded its reach beyond what the two of us contribute."
