LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state budget director will leave Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration for an unspecified job in the private sector.

John Roberts became budget chief in 2014 and before that was the Republican governor’s deputy chief of staff. He will depart in February after the release of the next state budget plan to lawmakers.

Roberts recently informed staff, telling them he takes “great pride” in working together to “make Michigan a better place.”

He cites accomplishments such as a lower unemployment rate, putting Detroit on firmer footing and boosting road spending.

His successor will be named once the selection process is complete.

Robert is the second budget director under Snyder.
