Rebecca Ellis, who has served in the Vermont House of Representatives since 2011, resigned her post this week to take a job with the state’s Agency of Natural Resources, the governor’s office announced today.
Gov. Peter Shumlin announced that Ellis, who served as an Assistant Attorney General from 1997 to 2011, will start a job as Senior Counsel for Government Affairs at the Department of Environmental Conservation on August 10.
Gov. Shumlin will now have to appoint a replacement for Ellis to serve out the remaining year of her term in the Statehouse. The announcement from the governor’s office said he plans to make the appointment before January.
