New Jersey CIO resigns as statehouse changes hands

New Jersey CIO Wendy Rayner will leave office Dec. 28 as the state government prepares to make the transition to incoming Gov. Jim McGreevey, who was elected Nov. 6 and will be inaugurated Jan. 15.

Rayner said she is considering jobs in both the government and private sectors. She became New Jersey's first CIO when she was appointed three and a half years ago.

'My biggest achievement was the collaborative effort to set the direction for IT in New Jersey,' Rayner said. 'The thing that excited me most about my time as CIO is that I think we made a very good beginning'the next administration can make good progress.'

Rayner was a political appointee under acting governor and Senate president Donald T. DiFrancesco, a Republican who gained his position when Christine Todd Whitman resigned to accept the position of administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. McGreevey is a Democrat.
