APS Chief Financial Officer resigns.

According to an article in this morning's Journal, link

APS Chief Financial Officer, Gina Hickman,
has announced her resignation.

Hickman is the center of a complaint filed with the
Office of the State Auditor, alleging that she misled the
APS Audit Committee, and ultimately the State Auditor,
by representing that APS has a whistleblower program that
meets the requirements of the federal government.

Hickman, a former APS auditor and controller, had been
promoted to CFO, despite the fact that she never blew the
whistle on the irregularities later cited by the Meyners' auditors;

irregularities that may well have cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

Hickman expressed a need to spend more time with her family.
