Changes Atop City Hall

Posted By on Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 4:30 PM

Interim City Manager Richard Miranda is making some big changes to the city staff.

The biggest ones: Miranda is bringing back Liz Rodriguez Miller, a former assistant city manager who left when Mike Hein was atop the city's bureaucracy, as an interim assistant city manager to oversee public safety and neighborhood services. He's also elevating Andy Quigley, who came to Tucson a few years back to oversee the Environmental Services Department and got handed Tucson Water when Jeff Biggs stepped down a while back, as an interim assistant city manager to oversee operations and public works.

Miranda is also creating a business/economic development manager position and plans on doing an external search to fill the job. Chris Kaselemis, the city's Housing and Community Development administrator, will be assisting "with the scoping and recruitment for this position," according a memo from Miranda.

Sean McBride, an assistant city manager brought in under the recently fired Mike Letcher, will become the interim director of Information Technology. Christina Parisi, who was an assistant to Letcher, will be on special assignment to the IT Department, where she will work on "marketing and communication outreach efforts for the city via the web and social media," according to Miranda's memo.

There are a handful of other changes outlined in the memo, which you can read in its entirely here: Org_Changes.pdf
