OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - After less than two months, former U.S. Rep. Brad Ashford has left his job as head of the Omaha development advocacy group Midtown 2050.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2oNDqPP ) that Ashford describes his departure as executive director of the group as amicable, saying he “wasn’t a good fit for the role.”

The group seeks to promote development in midtown Omaha, including a proposed streetcar line.

Ken Cook, chairman of the board, said in a statement Friday that he was sorry to receive Ashford’s resignation.

Ashford took the job soon after his one term as a congressman representing the Omaha area ended in January. A Democrat, Ashford lost his re-election bid to Republican Don Bacon in November.
