City’s interim finance chief quits; replaced by Hein aide

Citizen Staff Writer



In the middle of talks about how to cut about $80 million from next fiscal year’s budget, the city’s Finance Department is again without a permanent leader.

Finance Director Frank Abeyta submitted a letter of resignation Jan. 30.

His resignation was effective that day. Abeyta did not specify a reason for leaving but thanked Deputy City Manager Mike Letcher and the City Council for their support.

Abeyta had led the Finance Department for four months, half that time in an interim capacity.

In the meantime, Letcher has appointed Assistant to the City Manager Marie Nemerguth to oversee next fiscal year’s budget.

Nemerguth has a master’s in business administration and is a certified public accountant, Letcher said. She spent five years in the city’s budget department.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
