“Senior Accountant Heidi MacDonald Appointed Interim Finance Director”
- Editor’s note: On June 6, 2019, I published a report on the official resignation of Yelm’s Finance Director Joe Wolfe, though Wolfe had already been recommended to leave way prior to that. I asked, “Will [Yelm’s Senior Accountant Heidi] MacDonald be appointed to replace Wolfe?” Why did this interim appointment take over 40 days to make?
“The City of Yelm recently appointed Heidi MacDonald as the interim finance director.
“Heidi was hired as the senior accountant for the City in September of 2017 and played a key role in the recent accomplishments of the finance department, including the Government Finance Officers Association Distinguished Budget Award for transforming the city’s budget into a comprehensive document, guided by the city’s mission, vision, values, goals, and financial policies — established in 2016,” quoting the City of Yelm media release.
