Our Opinion: Redevelopment needs new boss

One of the first orders of business for the Rio Nuevo Multipurpose District Facilities Board is finding someone to run Rio Nuevo.

Greg Shelko, who was Rio Nuevo director for the city, will be out of a job June 30. His position was eliminated in the city budget.

Shelko had a good grasp on the many aspects of Rio Nuevo. But when he went to Phoenix to testify before the Legislature about the downtown projects, he didn’t have some necessary information and his performance was underwhelming.

It will be up to the Rio Nuevo board – the people now in charge – to find a director who will engender confidence in the project. That is important, but it will be difficult.

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.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
