WPA Executive Director Kim Ward announced her resignation today, after six years of working with the organization. In her statement, Ward sounds a bit like an embattled politician leaving Washington:

The decision to leave as Executive Director is solely precipitated by my desire to spend more time with my immediate and extended family. In the next few years my children will begin leaving home and starting college and I would like to be more present in their lives and see them as much as possible.

Seriously, though, Ward will very much be missed around here, and her departure is undoubtedly going to have a significant impact on the shape of the D.C. arts community going forward.

So...who do you think should take this job?
