TIJUANA.- The man in charge of auditing the funds managed by the state of Baja California has presented his letter of resignation to Gov. Francisco Vega.

Controller Francisco Postlethwaite Duhagón’s resignation comes right in the middle of a financial crisis that has led thousands of teachers and public employees to protest for unpaid salaries and bonuses.

The controller’s office is also in charge of handling transparency and information requests made by residents.

In the press release, Vega thanked Postlethwaite for his service. According to the state, the former controller will be taking another undisclosed job within the state

[:es]TIJUANA.-  Renuncia a su cargo el contralor general del Estado, Francisco Enrique Postlethwaite Duhagón.

El funcionario argumentó que el motivo es por problemas de salud.

Aunque muchos opinan que es una “gran casualidad” que la renuncia se presente precisamente en el momento en que cientos (o miles) de maestros y empleados públicos se manifiestan en son de protesta debido al incumplimiento de pagos por parte del gobierno del estado.

Cabe señalar que Postlethwaite Duhagón asumió el cargo el pasado 3 de julio de 2017 en sustitución de Bladimiro Hernández Díaz.[:]
