Redevelopment needs new boss

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

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.

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
