Resigning on Principles?

There are lots of reasons to resign. Ethics investigations, not wanting to have to attend a work sponsored prayer breakfast, health reasons, spend more time with the family...but resigning due to your belief in doing the right thing? That is a rare bird. But apparently the President of the NYS Counties board has just done that because he disagrees with the rest of the group:

"It has become increasingly evident to me that NYSAC's present board of directors and executive director has no interest in success for it's member counties or the taxpayers they are supposed to represent"

Seems like a noble reason to resign. However, the position was unpaid.
