Vermont’s Attorney General will not seek re-election.

Democrat T.J. Donovan announced Thursday that he will not to run for the seat he has held since January 2017.

“You know after 16 years I just think it was time to take a break and try something different," Donovan told WAMC Thursday.

Donovan, who before becoming AG spent a decade as Chittenden County state’s attorney, says work his office has done to settle cases concerning the opioid epidemic has been the most meaningful to him.
