A former television reporter who had served as a spokesman for Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young for the past two months has resigned.

Dennis Edwards, who joined Young's team shortly after he was elected president in February, resigned on Friday, according to Lester J. Davis, a press officer for Young.

Edwards had intended to "get the office up and running" and "decided he did what he set out to do," said Davis.

Edwards, a minister who pursuing a degree from a divinity school, did not work most Fridays due to his class schedule.

"I've done as much as I can for Jack," said Edwards. "I set up his office, his communication system, his website, his newsletter."

Davis, the former director of communication for the Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund, had previously worked as a reporter for The Palm Beach Post and had interned at The Baltimore Sun. He will handle press inquiries until the spokesman position is permanently filled.
