Three Amarillo Seniors who have questioned the leadership of the Senior Citizen Association are no longer members of the group.

Today Ed Bridges, J.P. Reese and Ed Braden tell us they received letters from the Amarillo Senior Citizens Board of Directors stating their memberships have been revoked. 
The reason given to them... Violating the organizations code of ethics. Bridges, Reese and Bbraden are outspoken about their disappointment and distrust with the group's management and spoke with NewsChannel 10 about their concerns. Last week a board member who spoke with us regarding the same issues, was asked to resign her board membership shortly after that story aired. That member refused to resign her position and as of this time the board has not revisited the issue.

Wednesday one of several issues they were pushing for ended in their favor. The board reinstated the age requirement to be a member.
