Johnson exits SAG board slot

Thesp resigns citing personal obligations

Anne-Marie Johnson, who was Valerie Harper’s running mate for 1st VP and SAG’s leading voice on affirmative action, has resigned from the SAG national board.

Johnson, an African-American actress who heads SAG’s ethnic employment opportunity commission, cited personal obligations in her resignation letter. Her slot will probably be filled when the Hollywood section of SAG’s national board meets today.

Johnson, whose credits include “JAG,” “Melrose Place” and “In the Heat of the Night,” was a member of SAG’s negotiating team during last year’s film-TV contract negotiations. She was elected to the board in 1997 and then re-elected in 2000, finishing eighth of 74 candidates.
