Mesquite promotes familiar face to director of finance role


The city’s replacement for outgoing Director of Finance Debbie Reid is a familiar face to Mesquite residents.

Cindy Smith is set to take over as the new director of finance after arriving earlier this year as the assistant director of finance. Smith will take over for Reid, who is moving to Amarillo to take a similar role, on Oct. 1.

The Mesquite Arts Center, shown here in a file photo, received a grant to continue its virtual programs during the coronavirus pandemic.
