Zack Stalberg, president and CEO of government watchdog group Committee of Seventy, has announced he is retiring next month.
This is the second retirement for the former Philadelphia Daily News editor. Stalberg, 67, left the newspaper business in 2005 to take the helm of Committee of Seventy. He and his wife, Deb, will be heading to New Mexico for retirement.
A successor has not been chosen yet, the organization said in a statement.
"The decision is a purely personal one," Stalberg said in a statement. "But I would not mind if it caused other members of the permanent establishment in this town to think about giving way to a younger and more change-oriented set of players. "
As for his move out to new Mexico, he offered this: "Deb and I will be going west, where I have always wanted to be. Like many before me, I am seeking renewal. And a good cutting horse."
