Gov. Doug Ducey recently announced the appointments of David Tenney as director of the Department of Forestry and Fire Management (DFFM), a position commonly known as state forester, and Jorge Fuentes as director of the Residential Utility Consumer Office (RUCO). Tenney has served as interim director of DFFM since November 2018. Before working at the department, Tenney served as the director of RUCO, which represents the interests of residential utility consumers in rate cases before the Arizona Corporation Commission. “With over 30 years experience in forestry and land management, David Tenney is well-suited to serve as Arizona’s next state forester,” said Ducey. “David brings insights from both the public and private sectors to the department, including a deep understanding of Arizona’s forests. I am confident that he will do an excellent job managing Arizona’s forests and working with our firefighting cooperators to protect our state’s residents from wildfires.”
