Just one week after Jefferson City announced the hiring of a new finance director, the candidate has “withdrawn from consideration” after the discovery that a civil court judgment has required her to pay close to $13,000 for unpaid credit card debt.
The News Tribune learned Thursday afternoon that Robin Milne, who was set to start Oct. 1 and receive a salary of $105,000, is currently paying off a debt to Citibank.
The judgment in the lawsuit, which was filed in Cole County Circuit Court, said Milne was found in default after failing to appear at the court date and ordered to pay a total of $12,709.19 in August 2011.
City Administrator Nathan Nickolaus said Milne withdrew her name from consideration late Thursday afternoon.
