Dear Mr. President:
(602) 514-7500 FAX: (602) 514-7693
I want to thank you for the extreme honor of serving my country and the Department of Justice as the United States Attorney for the District of Arizona for the last two years.
My office has made considerable progress during my tenure in prosecuting cases in the areas of border security/immigration, Indian Country and White Collar fraud as well as the creation of the first Civil Rights Unit in this District. We have made unprecedented gains in so many areas. I am very proud of the dedication and success of the employees in this office. They epitomize public service.
Nonetheless, I believe it is an appropriate time for me to step down so that the office can continue its progress under new leadership. I will assist in any and all aspects of transition. It has really been an extreme pleasure to serve you in this Administration and I am confident this office will continue in its immense success and impact.
