Owner of Red Hen restaurant resigns from position with non-profit organization

Local News

Officials with the City of Lexington confirm Stephanie Wilkinson has resigned from her position as Executive Director with Main Street Lexington.

The announcement follows a Facebook post, made by the volunteer organization, stating that Wilkinson’s actions were made as owner of The Red Hen and “were taken independently from her role as executive director.”

Wilkinson has still declined to speak with any media, other than the Washington Post, in regards to her restaurant’s decision to ask White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave the establishment on Friday night.

That post has since been removed from the organization’s page.

The board for the committee is anticipated to meet Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. for further action.
