Hultberg resigning as administration commissioner

JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell is losing another commissioner.

Becky Hultberg told Parnell in a letter dated Monday that she plans to resign as commissioner of the Department of Administration, effective Dec. 11, for a position in the private sector.

Hultberg told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she has a job offer but it was premature to discuss the details.

Hultberg is the fourth commissioner to step down in recent months.

Bryan Butcher resigned as revenue commissioner in August to join the Alaska Housing Finance Corp. Dan Sullivan left his post at the Department of Natural Resources in September to run for U.S. Senate, and Joe Masters resigned as public safety commissioner last month after five years with plans to return to the private sector.

Hultberg has served as administration commissioner for three years.

She said it’s been a wonderful experience and she leaves knowing the department is in good hands.

An acting commissioner has not yet been named.
