JUNEAU, Alaska -

Gov. Sean Parnell is losing another commissioner.

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

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

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 in that role with plans to return to the private sector.

Hultberg has served as Administration commissioner for three years. An acting commissioner has not yet been named.
