DEPUTY GOV. HYNES LEAVING ADMINISTRA­TION

- Rachel Hinton

Deputy Gov. Dan Hynes is out of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administra­tion.

At an unrelated press conference Thursday morning, Pritzker thanked Hynes for his time as the deputy governor of budget and economy, calling him a “steady first mate to steer our fiscal ship out of decades of turbulent waters.” Hynes will be replaced by former state Sen. Andy Manar, whom the governor said will “provide immeasurab­ly important perspectiv­e.”

A former state comptrolle­r, Hynes said he had no intention of going back into government but joined Pritzker’s team in part because of his “incredible respect” for the governor.
