A press release issued Saturday stated:
- Ms. Endo worked diligently on behalf of AAJA and demonstrated a strong dedication and commitment to its mission. However, philosophical differences over AAJA's vision and direction have led to this mutual decision.
Endo was hired by the AAJA in December 2008, replacing Rene Astudillo, who had held the position since 1999. (Photo credits: Endo, Rafu Shimpo; Blackmun, AAJA)
