BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho state Treasurer Ron Crane says he won’t seek re-election when his fifth term ends in 2018.

Crane told Boise TV station KTVB (https://bit.ly/11uPylI) that he’s enjoyed his 20 years in office but he thinks it’s time for someone else to make their mark in the post.

Controversy has marked some of Crane’s time in office, including multi-million dollar investment losses, criticism over some travel expenses and most recently a whistleblower lawsuit from a former employee who says he was fired after complaining about the alleged wasting of taxpayer money.

Crane has also had successes in the post, including the launch of a popular college savings program and a focus on building up Idaho’s credit rating.

Crane says he’ll look back at those accomplishments with fond admiration.
