After two years as emergency manager of Detroit Public Schools, Roy Roberts has officially left the position. Governor Rick Snyder today named current Detroit Chief Financial Officer Jack Martin to replace him.
Martin has also served as emergency manager of Highland Park Schools, and as CFO of the U.S. Department of Education.
Governor Snyder says he expects the transition between Roberts and Martin to be seamless.
The US Supreme Court’s decision striking down part of the federal Voting Rights Act lifts a requirement that the state and two Michigan municipalities check with the Justice Department on their election plans.
