The Finance Department director for the city of Santa Fe resigned suddenly Tuesday.

Mel Morgan, who had been on the job since mid-2011, delivered a letter to City Manager Robert Romero earlier in the day stating that he was immediately leaving the post. Morgan was unavailable for comment late Tuesday, and Romero said he couldn’t comment on the reason for Morgan’s departure.

    Be sure to do an audit right away because he probably embezzled a cool million or more.

    Probably got tired of Robert Romero's dirty politics and back room bullying.

    If you don't play politics "there way" you're off to someplace else.

    Maybe they could fill the position with a retired/former cop...to print some money for them. Budget woes gone.

    never ever heard of a finance director quitting right in the middle of budget formulation. this is highly suspicious. does this have anything to due with all the pending audits or litigation against the city, hope someone gets to the bottom of this!

    Follow the money. Keep digging, reporters. Me thinks there is more here than meets the eye. Too bad, the man appeared to be competent and transparent (maybe the latter was the problem).

    This city has it's way of alienating its competent employees.

    What fun is a sudden resignation & abrupt departure without a hint of scandal? Is this guy mocking city politics-as-usual by leaving his office in order? The nerve!

    Oh, not to fear. It will be filled by a, "capable", friend or family member.

    If you have capable people , why fill the position. It sounds redundant.
