Longtime state comptroller retires

Longtime State Comptroller Bob Childree retired Thursday after working for the state for 35 years.
He was appointed comptroller in 1987 after working as a governmental accountant. Childree became the highest ranking governmental accountant in the state merit system.
"Bob’s retirement means Alabama is losing one of its most dedicated public servants," said State Finance Director Jim Main.
Childree is credited with transforming the office during his tenure.
The state has also earned the Government Finance Officers Association's Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the past nine fiscal years.
Childree was president of the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers and president of the National Association of State Comptrollers.
