LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder is losing a key member of his staff this summer. Bill Rustem has been Snyder's strategy director since he took office, but will retire later this month according to MIRS News.

A spokesperson for the governor says Rustem is stepping down for a family health issue. Before taking the job with Snyder, he was the president and CEO of Public Sector Consultants and helped enact Michigan's bottle deposit law in 1976 when working as the chief environmental affairs advisor for Governor Bill Milliken.
