San Leandro Finance Director Tracy Vesely is resigning from her position for a similar job opportunity with the City of Hayward, The Citizen has learned.

Vesely tendered her resignation Thursday before notifying members of her department of her intentions. Her last day is July 8.

After spending just seven months in charge of San Leandro’s budget, Vesely’s departure leaves the city’s leadership in further turmoil.

Just this week Vesely’s first fiscal budget returned was unanimously approved by the City Council and featured a balanced budget without the use of reserves since 2006, but she gave no indication any change in employment was imminent.

Vesely replaced interim finance director Perry Carter last October. Her move to Hayward will be third East Bay city she has been employed in the past year. She came to San Leandro after a short time as Berkeley’s budget director.
