Tucker cites "private sector work" for sudden resignation

(Continued)

In the report, auditors claim city officials did not use realistic estimates in developing the 2013 budget. Revenues were overly optimistic, resulting in operating deficits, auditors reported. The city treasurer's office did not properly record or report the city’s financial position, the audit report charged. If it had, it is very likely that city officials would have been aware of the city’s declining financial condition and could have taken corrective action sooner, auditors said.

Tucker has served as mayor since 2004, winning re-election in 2007 and 2011. He previously served as an alderman for the 7th Ward and was Common Council president from 1996 through 2000.

A 1975 Lockport High School graduate, Tucker worked at Harrison Radiator Division of General Motors for 30 years.
