The president of the Arizona-Mexico commission has resigned from the unpaid position. The commission is a public-private organization that promotes trade, networking and information-sharing across the border.

The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/2gzbkAe) that commission President David Farca announced his resignation during a reception in Hermosillo, Mexico. Approximately 150 people attended the event, including Sonoran officials, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and state and businesses leaders.

Farca said Monday that his departure was a “personal decision” because the position was taking time away from his business.

Daniel Scarpinato, a spokesman for Ducey, said Monday that Farca’s resignation was voluntary. Ducey said in a statement that Farca’s leadership has improved the state’s partnership with Mexico.

Farca’s resignation is the latest in a string of recent departures from Ducey’s administration.
