Florida Lottery Secretary Tom Delacenserie, a longtime official at the state agency, submitted his resignation Friday, effective June 2, Gov. Rick Scott’s office said.
Delacenserie has been secretary since November 2015, and the announcement from the governor’s office did not give a reason for his departure.
“Tom has been a valued member of my team since the start of my administration and I am proud of the great work he has done for Florida’s students,” Scott said in a prepared statement, referring to the lottery’s role in providing money for education. “I wish Tom and his family the very best in their future endeavors.”
The governor’s office did not name a replacement Friday.
