Update: Brown, who cited personal reasons for resigning, will be replaced by Saginaw City Manager Darnell Earley. According to a news release from the Michigan Department of Treasury, Early’s appointment will be effective October 1. He and Brown will work together during a month long transition period.

Earley has been city manager in Saginaw for the last eight years. Prior to that, Earley served as city administrator in Flint and also did a six-month temporary stint as mayor in 2002.
