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.
“Mesquite’s community has been very welcoming to me since I arrived earlier this year. And the team in our Finance Department have been very supportive during my transition into the organization,” Smith said in a news release. “I am grateful for this opportunity to continue my career with a city that is growing and expanding, and to serve citizens who expect a high performing government.”
Smith has more than 16 years of experience in the finance world and is certified as a Government Financial Manager and in Public Management, according
