A spokesman for the Port Authority confirms Sunday that James Rubin’s last day was Wednesday. He was appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The New York Times reports Rubin will move to London with his wife and son.

Rubin was the State Department’s chief spokesman under President Bill Clinton. Before entering government, he was a journalist and a professor.

Rubin led the Port Authority’s security committee and was a member of its operations committee. Cuomo also appointed him as a counselor to the state’s Empire State Development Corporation.

Rubin will be a scholar in residence at Oxford University’s Rothermere American Institute. He also plans to write a book.
