Three members of the state Parole Board resigned yesterday - after soon to be Governor Mark Warner revealed his plans to get rid of them after taking office.
Warner said on Monday that he would replace the Board within a month of taking office, and might work to abolish it completely.
One of the resigning board members says Warner acted prematurely, and says it shows that the incoming governor is ``not experienced with how the government works.''
