El Paso deputy city manager resigns because of family health matters

An El Paso deputy city manager has announced her resignation, citing family health issues.

Deputy city manager of public safety and support services Nancy Bartlett submitted her letter of resignation, which is effective May 4.

Bartlett oversaw the fire and police departments, 911 and 311 communications, human resources, information technology, the office of management and budget and the performance office.

City manager Tommy Gonzalez appointed Dionne Mack to serve as interim deputy city manager.

“I support Ms. Bartlett’s decision to put family first. Ms. Bartlett has been an asset to the city of El Paso. However, I am confident Ms. Mack will be very effective in her new role,” Gonzalez said.

City officials said Mack was asked to create a 100-day action plan for the department.

Mack started working for the city of El Paso in 2011 as the public library director. Most recently, she served as managing director of public libraries and the Parks and Recreation Department. She also previously served as interim managing director of quality of life.

Mack holds a bachelor's degree in history and African-American studies from the State University of New York College at Brockport, and a master’s degree in African studies and a master’s of library science degree from the University at Albany.
