Appointments for key posts in ADEQ

Several appointments have been announced for senior positions in the state’s environmental protection agency.

Department of Environmental Quality Director Ben Grumbles on Dec. 14 announced that administrative counsel Henry Darwin is the new deputy director. Darwin replaces Patrick Cunningham, who is leaving for a senior post in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Arizona.

In other key appointments, Mike Fulton will direct the water quality division and Ira Domsky will be acting director of the air quality. Longtime air quality director Nancy Wrona will become a senior policy adviser.

The moves cap a monthslong transition that saw Gov. Jan Brewer appoint Grumbles to head an agency that has been a frequent lightning rod for criticism from business interests.
