Gov. Chris Christie announced Monday that Department of Community Affairs Commissioner Richard Constable will be stepping down from his post at the end of the month.

“Rich has served me extraordinarily well for more than a decade, and I appreciate his service to this state and the country,” Christie said. “He has worked with me closely as a federal prosecutor, deputy commissioner of the Department of Labor & Workforce Development and as commissioner of the Department of Community Affairs, where he took on some of the most complex issues impacting New Jerseyans, from controlling local property taxes to Sandy recovery. I thank him for his service and his friendship and wish him well in his new endeavors.”

Constable, who has been a member of Christie’s cabinet since 2012, will be leaving for an undisclosed position in the private sector. He began working under Christie in 2002, when he was hired as an assistant federal prosecutor during the governor’s tenure as U.S. Attorney.
