LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Several members of the University of Louisville Board of Trustees wanted to take a vote of no confidence in the leadership of President James Ramsey on Tuesday.

The vote proposed by trustee Dr. Jody Prather was not allowed on procedural grounds, but the message was sent nonetheless.

Ramsey, who did not speak during the meeting, told reporters he was “not at all surprised” by the move and that dissention on the board has been “going on a long time.”

Asked if he would resign, Ramsey indicated he plans to stay at least until his next annual evaluation in July, and he said the board gave him a positive evaluation last July. His contract with U of L, extended in 2012, runs through 2020.
