July 17, 2013 By

The Sacramento, Calif., Information Technology Department confirmed on July 16 that Gary Cook left his position as CIO as of July 15, and is no longer working for the city.

In an internal email, City Manager John Shirey announced Cook's resignation, as well as the appointment of Maria MacGunigal as the interim director, effective immediately.

"The Information Technology Department is an important function in the day-to-day operations of the city, and I know Maria will capably lead the many talented staff members in the department until a permanent appointment is made," Shirey wrote.

Cook began his position as the city's CIO nearly three years ago, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Government Technology featured Cook’s work with the city of Sacramento’s 311 app. Cook said that projects like that 311 app are crucial steps toward changing the model of civic engagement and reaching his personal goal of making Sacramento the best managed city in California.
