Az treasurer says he’ll quit before sentencing

State Treasurer David Petersen says he will step down from office Nov. 30, the day before his sentencing on a misdemeanor charge of failing to report commissions he received for selling character-education materials to schools.

Petersen’s guilty plea to the charge of filing a false or incomplete financial disclosure report ended a monthslong criminal investigation.

Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano will appoint a replacement to serve until the winner of Tuesday’s general election takes office in January. Under state law, the temporary replacement appointed by Napolitano must be a Republican because that is Petersen’s party.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
