Governor accepts Dillon's resignation; thanks treasurer for leadership, service

October 11, 2013

LANSING, Mich. — Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement regarding the resignation today submitted by state Treasurer Andy Dillon, who will step down Nov. 1:

“It is with regret but understanding that I accept Andy’s resignation. He has been instrumental in many of the comprehensive reforms that are contributing to Michigan’s comeback. Andy has worked tirelessly on behalf of the people of Michigan, and we’re a stronger state because of his dedication, expertise and leadership.

“We all can be proud of everything that Michigan has accomplished during the past three years. Working together, we’ve brought fairness and simplicity to Michigan’s outdated tax system. We’ve worked collaboratively to help cities and schools deal with financial crises. His partnership with Detroit to assist in the city’s turnaround is just one example of Andy’s positive impact on Michigan. We’ve also worked with our local government partners to encourage greater service efficiencies that benefit taxpayers. A key reason for the success of these initiatives and others is Andy’s commitment to Michigan’s future. He embraced those challenges because he understands that these policies are critical to ensuring more and better jobs for families, and preparing our children for the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.

“Andy has demonstrated time and again that he was the right person at the right time to serve as treasurer. I respect his decision to seek new opportunities and offer my sincere gratitude for his years of selfless service to our state.

“I am pleased that Andy will remain available to assist the new treasurer with the transition. We are working to select a new treasurer and will share that announcement when the process is completed.”
