    Dave Massaron, Gov. Whitmer budget office director, resigns

    The head of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s budget team is leaving state government to become the chief financial officer at Wayne State University.

    Dave Massaron’s resignation as state budget director comes less than one year after he joined the administration. Although the announcement of his departure comes before the governor and lawmakers have finalized a budget, Whitmer said he will stay with the administration through the end of the fiscal year in September.  

    “Dave Massaron has been an instrumental partner in the progress we have made for Michigan families,” Whitmer said in a release. “Thanks to Dave’s leadership, we continued to put Michiganders first and worked across the aisle with the Legislature to make several game-changing investments, including the largest education investment in state history, without raising taxes.”

    Whitmer also announced that Susan Corbin will serve as the permanent director of the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity. She had served as the department’s acting director since October. 

    Before joining the Whitmer administration in December, Massaron worked as chief financial officer with the city of Detroit. At the time, Whitmer said Massaron was uniquely qualified and would use the position to help the state recover financially from the COVID-19 pandemic.
