Town of North Hempstead Deputy Supervisor Aline Khatchadourian will be resigning from her position in January, the town announced on Wednesday, after five years of service to the town.
No reason was given in a press release for her resignation. A town spokesperson declined to comment further.
Khatchadourian, certified public accountant, had first joined the administration as finance director in December 2013. Less than a year later, Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth appointed her to also serve as a deputy supervisor.
Bosworth attributed much of the town’s financial success to Khatchadourian’s skills, embrace of “bipartisan cooperation” and a “shared vision for transparency and fiscal responsibility.”
“With Aline’s financial acumen, critical analytical skills and persistence, we reduced the Town’s debt and achieved the first Aaa bond rating in our Town’s long history,” Bosworth said. “Working with my entire team, Aline has played a key role in helping us achieve structurally-balanced budgets and comprehensive long-term capital plans each year I have been in office.”
Bosworth said that Khatchadourian had informed her about her intention to resign, but that she wanted to “help facilitate a smooth and seamless transition.”
Jeanine Dillon, Bosworth’s chief of staff, will take on the responsibilities of deputy supervisor. It’s unclear at this time if a fulltime successor will be named.
Prior to working as deputy supervisor, Khatchadourian worked for seven and a half years in the Nassau County Legislature, according to her LinkedIn profile. Among her titles were director of finance, deputy budget director and deputy comptroller.
Additionally, from 2004 to 2010, she was a trustee on the Manhasset Board of Education.
