Officials said Friday that the first black chief deputy at Pima County law firm would leave in less than a year in a position to work in the non-profit sector.
Tamara Murembo from Phoenix took up this position shortly after Laura Conover, a new lawyer in Pima County, took office in January.
Joe Watson, communications director at the county law firm, said Murembo plans to finish his duties by the end of the year.
According to Watson, Martha Durkin, a veteran city and county employee with experience in both civil and criminal law, fills in while Conover is looking for a new chief deputy.
“Martha will be the interim chief deputy and Tamara will complete certain projects she is working on,” Watson said, adding that Darkin runs the office’s human resources, finance and IT departments.
Murembo attended law school at the University of Arizona and worked at the Pima County Public Defense Department after graduation. She came to the county law firm after working for State Farm’s in-house lawyer and federal civil servant office.
Earlier this year, Murembo told Stars that he was scrutinizing office disciplines and conversion programs from the perspective of an unmarried outsider with the idea of doing things the old way.
