The Governor’s Office issued a press release Friday listing Black’s departure along with the immediate departure of Jeff Whitney, the director of the Division of Forestry and Fire Management. A representative from Ducey’s office did not elaborate on Black’s departure or on the staff changes.
Ted Vogt, who Ducey named as the interim Parks Director when Black was placed on administrative leave, will continue to serve in that capacity. Vogt was previously the director of the Corporation Commission, but resigned amid questions about his ties to Arizona Public Service Co., which the commission regulates.
