Mike Weinstein, the city's chief financial officer, is retiring effective Nov. 9. His last day in his office at City Hall will be Sept. 28.

“I'll be 70 in a couple of months and I've had a tremendous career. I've been blessed,” he said Monday.

Weinstein came to Jacksonville in 1975.

He was an assistant state attorney and executive director of the 4th Judicial Circuit State Attorney's Office and later represented Jacksonville in the state Legislature from 2008 to 2012.

His private sector career includes CEO of Volunteers in Medicine, president of Take Stock in Children and president and CEO of the Jacksonville Host Committee for Super Bowl XXXIX.

Weinstein's service at City Hall began as chief of staff and CFO for former Mayor Ed Austin and then the same positions during former Mayor John Delaney's administration.

Weinstein also was executive director of the Jacksonville Economic Development Commission, now the city Office of Economic Development, from 1996 to 2001.

He joined Mayor Lenny Curry's executive staff in July 2015 and helped in the initiative to reform the city’s pension obligations.

“It’s hard to imagine many people who have such a wide range of experience and success as a public servant," Curry said in a news release. "Although he will be missed, there is no one more deserving of the time he will now be able to spend with family and friends. The people of this city are better for the years Mike devoted to making a brighter future.”
