Driggers announced her departure in the most recent KPC newsletter.

Her last day is Friday.

“I think it just wasn’t the right fit and I wanted to check out other opportunities,” Driggers said by phone on Thursday. “It was a great learning experience and full of people who are dedicated to supporting the base.”

Driggers, an attorney who worked as a field representative for U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, has worked as the partnership’s executive director since September 2016.

She said she stayed on a bit longer than the end of her year-long contract to help with the transition.

Driggers said she didn’t know the status of the search for┬áher replacement.

Stu Purviance, Driggers’ predecessor, held the position for 19 years before retiring in summer of 2016.

The KPC is a nonprofit organization that advocates for Kirtland Air Force Base.
