SAN JUAN – After more than four years of service as a member of the Fiscal Control Board, Judge Arthur González announced that he will leave his effective position on Friday.
“Working on the Oversight Board together with my colleagues has been a great honor. During the four years that I have served on the Board, I have felt and seen first-hand the commitment of all those involved in helping Puerto Rico move forward, not just by imposing fiscal discipline and continuing our efforts to remove the Commonwealth from bankruptcy, but by working first and foremost for the good of the people of Puerto Rico, ”said González, who was appointed by President Barack Hussein Obama on August 31, 2016.
“We want to thank Arthur for the indispensable contributions he has made during these past four years on the Board. By keeping in mind his background as a judge and bankruptcy experience, he was critically important in his role of directing and reporting to the Board during the Title III proceedings. Judge González also provided valuable insight into the core issues that led Puerto Rico through this difficult situation, including poor fiscal controls, mismanagement, and a poor sense of responsibility, always putting the well-being of the people of Puerto Rico first and foremost.
Your valuable input and your gracious character will be greatly missed. We wish him well and are grateful for his friendship, ”said David Skeel, Chairman of the Board.
