Former Council President Tony Young No Longer With Red Cross

Young has been with the Red Cross since Jan. 2013

The American Red Cross San Diego/Imperial Counties confirmed Friday that its CEO Tony Young is no longer working with the organization.

Young, a former San Diego City Council President, has served as the chapter’s head for about 14 months.

The Red Cross has not released a reason for his leaving.

“Like many organizations the Red Cross considers personnel mattes private and we do not comment on the reasons why someone has left the organization,” the Red Cross said in a statement.

Malinda McDonald, the chapter’s COO, will serve as the interim CEO.

Young resigned from his position on the San Diego City Council in Dec. 2012 with more than a year left in his term.

He was voted into the District 4 city council seat in 2005, and he served as the council’s president since Dec. 2010.
