Carmen Kasper has resigned from her position as director of human services for the Town of Huntington.
She was suspended earlier this month while under investigation for an allegedly inappropriate comment she made to a town worker, who filed a complaint, which led to an investigation.
The human services department manages programs for senior citizens, veterans, minority residents, women, and people with disabilities.
Kasper previously served as director of world languages for the Huntington school district. She retired from the district in 2015, and ran unsuccessfully for the Board of Education in 2016.
She was appointed to the town job in August 2018.
