Shani Wilson is stepping down effective immediately. The board will hold a special meeting Monday to appoint a new chair.

Wilson’s resignation comes the same week suspended PAB Director Conor Dwyer Reynolds published comments online accusing her of sexual harrasment and then retaliating against him when he reported it.

Wilson maintains she did nothing wrong. In a statement she writes "While I maintain that the accusations against me are false, I recognize that the best thing for the residents of this city, and my wellness and safety is that I resign."
