Port's CEO Exonerated, But Quitting Anyway
Alec Dreyer: Not going to take it anymore.
The DA's office issued what Dreyer's lawyer called a "virtually unprecedented" letter saying the charges were not true.
As a result, Dreyer is...quitting.
"I'm proud of what we've accomplished. This experience, however, has shown me that the political arena is not where I want to be," Dreyer said in an open letter. "I have decided not to seek reappointment, but rather to go back to the business world."
Dreyer, who has been with the Port two years, said he will continue to serve until a replacement is found.
