However, Branham will remain active. 

“I will remain on the committee, as a member, and will help our new Chair in any way I can,” Branham wrote. 

Sarah Criswell, a resident of Winchester who – according to her Facebook page – is a targeted case manager at New Vista KY – has been named the new chair. 

With the need to appoint a male as vice chair, Suzy Dent resigned from the position. 

Kenneth Aitken, an independent contractor, was named the new vice chair.
