LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State Treasurer Andy Dillon will resign from office, according to a statement Friday afternoon.

A statement issued from Dillon’s office states, “It is with mixed emotions that I announce I have tendered my resignation to Governor Snyder. It has become clear to me– as it likely is to most — that it is unfair to my family and the residents of Michigan, to allow issues related to my recent divorce and the unfortunate acrimony associated with it to be a continued source of media attention and scrutiny. My family deserves privacy and our residents deserve to know their State Treasurer is not distracted by such issues and events. For these personal and professional reasons, I have determined it is in the best interests of all that I resign.”

Dillon said, “I am deeply committed to Governor Snyder and have tremendous respect for him and his unbending commitment to the people of Michigan. I want to thank the Governor for the opportunity to serve as Treasurer and will work closely with his office to ensure a smooth transition to my successor.”

“I have always considered it a privilege and honor to work on behalf of all Michigan residents and will look back fondly on my years of service in Lansing.”

Dillon was appointed by Governor Snyder in January 2011.  He also served three terms in the Michigan House of Representatives.
