The City of Buffalo will have a new comptroller Monday morning, and the state of New York will have a new DMV chief.
Mark J.F. Schroeder filed with the city Clerk’s Office his resignation as the comptroller, effective at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
Monday morning, Vanessa Glushefski, whom Schroeder appointed as deputy commissioner earlier this month, will become acting comptroller, Schroeder said.
Schroeder — a former Erie County legislator and Assembly member who has served as the city's top fiscal watchdog since January 2012 — will become commissioner of the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Buffalo Common Council will have 90 days from Schroeder’s resignation to appoint an interim comptroller to serve through the end of Schroeder's term on Dec. 31.
