Gov. Haslam: Claude Ramsey, deputy to the governor, to retire

Claude Ramsey, Deputy to the Governor, set to retire in August

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced Deputy to the Governor Claude Ramsey will retire at the end of August to spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren in Chattanooga.

Ramsey has been integral to Haslam on several key initiatives, including civil service reform, economic development efforts, workforce development training and improved operation of state government.

“Claude’s experience at the state and local levels of government and his common sense approach have been invaluable assets to our administration, and I am incredibly grateful to him and his wife, Jan, for their time in Nashville and commitment to the state of Tennessee.”

When he joined the administration in January 2011, Ramsey agreed to serve as deputy to the governor for two years but has stayed on past his original commitment.  Before joining the Haslam administration, Ramsey was in his fifth term as Hamilton County mayor, having played key roles in educational and economic successes in Southeast Tennessee.

“It’s been a true pleasure to work with the governor on the important issues of job growth, education reform and making Tennessee the best-run state in the country.  “The governor is a man of integrity with a clear vision for the state, and I will do anything I can to help him in the future as he continues to serve,” Ramsey said.

Ramsey, 70, was elected to the General Assembly in 1972 where he served four years.  He was the assessor of property in Hamilton County from 1980-1994 and was a county commissioner for two years.  He served 16 years as Hamilton County mayor.

Ramsey’s last day on the job will be August 31.
