NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -

Governor Bill Haslam announced Wednesday 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.

Haslam says 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.

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," Ramsey says. "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, 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.
