State Democratic Chair Randy Voller said Tuesday he was saddened by the resignation of his second in command, but ignored the criticism that was aimed at him.
Nina Szlosberg-Landis sent out a letter Monday night announcing that she stepping down as first vice chairman of the state Democratic Party, saying she had a difficult time working with Voller.
In a statement Tuesday, Voller had nothing but praise for Szlosberg-Landis.
“We are better because of Nina's service and commitment to this party,” said Voller, the mayor of Pittsboro. “In her time as 1st vice chair, she has served our party with grace, distinction and competence. We know that she will continue this service, regardless of the role she assumes.''
“The door to the Goodwin House will always be open to her and her steadfast dedication to the values we all hold dear as North Carolina,'' Voller said.
Voller said the Democratic Party is "in a transition period" while it builds an effective opposition to Republicans.
