Caitlin Baggott, the executive director of the Oregon Bus Project, announced today in a statement that she will step down at the end of the summer.

"This will be my final summer at the Bus Project's driver's wheel," Baggott wrote. "When I got behind that wheel in 2011, the board and I agreed on a simple, two year plan: to create stability for this young organization and clarity around our dedicated mission to inspire a generation of leaders ready to lead for the politics of tomorrow."

Baggott succeeded her co-founder and boss, former State Rep. Jefferson Smith (D-Portland), at the wheel of the Bus, a non-profit which promotes voter registration and civic engagement.

Baggott did not provide information in her announcement about who will succeed her or what she plans to do next.
