Dan Hunt and The Messengers

From hardware to the hardwood: IT director a singing sensation

Pima County employees have many hidden talents. Or, in some cases, not so hidden.

Dan Hunt, chief information officer for the County and director of the Information Technology Department, sang the National Anthem at the Feb. 28 University of Arizona women’s basketball game at McKale Center with fellow members of the gospel music group, the Tucson Messengers. But it was by no means his first gig.
