Hull Takes Over Office Of Arizona Governor

The change at the top took place almost imperceptibly, as Fife Symington’s resignation as governor became official Friday, and power passed to his Secretary of State, Jane Dee Hull.

The only sign of the transition was a pair of moving vans in a Capitol driveway. Symington had packed up his mementoes and slipped out Thursday night, the day after he was convicted of fraud.

On Friday, movers carted off furniture, paintings from his extensive art collection and dozens of boxed belongings from his ninth-floor office.

His resignation became official at 5 p.m. Hull, 62, a fellow Republican, passed the hour without ceremony, instead scheduling her swearing-in for Monday.
