Claims Commissioner J. Paul Vance Jr. resigned last week according to a letter sent to Gov. Dannel Malloy.
"I have several professional goals that I would like to pursue that would conflict with the obligations of the Claims Commissioner position," Vance wrote in the letter.
Vance wrote that his resignation be effective on Mar. 4, 2016.
According to the Hartford Courant, Malloy is working to appoint a new commissioner.
