Head of the Arizona Game and Fish Commission Jack Husted has resigned, effective immediately.
In a letter a Gov. Jan Brewer, Husted said he plans to spend more time with family and focus on future work endeavors.
He has worked with the commission for four years to help the department's role in managing and conserving Arizona wildlife.
Below is his resignation letter to Gov. Jan Brewer:
Dear Governor Brewer:
Having served in a volunteer capacity on several appointed boards and commissions in
Arizona, I have enjoyed my public service opportunities and in particular my service on
the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. I have worked hard over the past four years
as a commissioner to strengthen the department's role and responsibilities in managing
and conserving our state's wildlife, which is held in trust for our citizens. It has been
humbling to stand alongside other commissioners and departmental staff to strengthen
the governing pillars of wildlife management and conservation in our nation – the North
American Model for Wildlife Conservation.
However, I have come to the realization that it is time to embark on a new chapter in
my life, as a private citizen, with time to focus on my family, my faith and my
professional endeavors. So with this letter, I tender my resignation as a commissioner
on the Arizona Game and Fish Commission effective immediately. I am grateful and
honored to have had the opportunity to serve your administration as a commissioner
and sincerely thank you for the confidence you showed in appointing me.
