CVS Caremark executive Helena Foulkes, Governor Chafee’s choice to be vice-chair of the state Economic Development Corporation, has resigned. She released the following statement through her employer:
“I have discussed with the Governor his plans for the Board at the EDC, and I think it is best at this time I resign. I wish him good luck in this very difficult challenge.”
