BLM Phoenix district gets new manager

PHOENIX (AP) -

A longtime employee of the Bureau of Land Management has been named as the new manager of the agency's Phoenix district.

The agency says Mary D'Aversa will begin her new assignment on Jan. 28. She will be responsible for 2.4 million acres in Arizona.

The Phoenix district manager also oversees the Hassayampa and Lower Sonoran field offices. Together, the offices manage federal lands that stretch from Arizona's border with Utah south to the Mexican border.

D'Aversa is currently the manager of the Schell Field Office in Ely, Nev. She has worked on wild horse and burro gathers as well as grazing, fire management and renewable energy projects.

She previously worked for the BLM in Wyoming, Oregon and Washington, D.C.

D'Aversa replaces Angelita Bulletts, who is now the forest supervisor for the Dixie National Forest.
