Pscholka Stepping Down From Budget Director Post

State Budget Director Al Pscholka is resigning next month and will be replaced by Governor Rick Snyder’s strategy director. The Republican governor announced the change Friday, effective February 28. Pscholka, a former state representative from Berrien County who became budget director a year ago, says he wants to pursue unspecified opportunities in southwest Michigan and to spend more time with his family. He will stay on to help finalize and release the next proposed budget in February. Governor Snyder calls Pscholka an “outstanding addition to our team.”
