Major Richard Reese, Director General leaves the Department of Local Government, when his contract ends, June 10, 2011.

State Minister with responsibility for the department, Robert Montague, made the announcement last night as the Standing Finance Committee of Parliament examined the Estimates of Expenditure for the 2011-2012 fiscal year.

Reese is to take up a job as CEO of a major security firm. He, however, will continue serving on government boards.

Reese, who has served as commissioner of corrections, was a permanent secretary in the Ministry of National Security before he was shifted to the Department of Local Government last year.
