 H. Carl McCall, the chairman of the board of trustees of the State University of New York, has announced his retirement after nearly eight years in the appointed post.

The 83-year-old McCall announced that he’ll “pursue other interests” after more than 50 years in public service.

McCall served as state comptroller from May 1993 through December 2002, a month after he lost the November election for governor to incumbent George Pataki.

A state senator representing a Manhattan district from 1975 through 1980, McCall also served as ambassador to the United Nations and commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the fellow Democrat “a quintessential public servant” and “a trailblazer who paved a path for others to follow.”
