    Reenie and LisaCounty Administrator Chuck Huckelberry lifted the interim tag off two department directors this week. Maureen “Reenie” Ochoa is the new director of the Pima County Stadium District, which operates Kino Sports Complex. She has been serving as interim director since December. Lisa Josker is the new director of Facilities Management. She has been serving as interim since Feb. 1.

    Lisa Josker has been deputy director of Facilities Management since 2008 and has worked for the department for 19 years. She has a total of 29 years experience in facilities management. She replaced Michael Kirk, who took a job in Washington to be closer to family earlier this year. 

    Facilities Management oversees all new construction of County buildings and amenities, and maintains and operates all county assets. It also manages and monitors all county energy use plus operates all of the county’s parking garages. 

    During her time with Facilities Management she has overseen nearly a half-billion dollars in county construction projects including the new Public Service Center and Garage on North Stone Avenue. 

    "It is a privilege to have this opportunity to serve both the employees and residents of Pima County as the Director of Facilities Management," Josker said. " Our job of continually improving county facilities, making them better and more efficient, benefits the entire community. I am looking forward to the future and the many exciting opportunities we will encounter with both our historic structures and newer buildings."

    Reenie Ochoa came to Pima County from the city of Tucson where she had worked for 30 years, the last 12 as the Parks and Recreation Administrator. She replaced former Stadium Director Benny Young, who left in December for a municipal management job in California. 

    The Stadium District runs Kino Sports Complex, a former Major League Baseball spring training facility and a soccer, baseball and softball fields complex on East Ajo Way. Because it was once a professional baseball training center, all of the fields are professional quality, making it a popular youth, high school, college and adult sports league tournament site. It also hosts Major League Soccer preseason training games every February and is the home field for Tucson’s minor league soccer team, FC Tucson. 

    “I am extremely honored and excited to have been selected as the director of the Pima County Stadium District, and am looking forward to the Kino Sports Complex continuing its long standing tradition as one of the Southwest’s premiere Sports and Entertainment venues.”
