State Representative Andrés Cano officially resigned his seat in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

In May, the Tucson Democrat announced he intended to resign because he was accepted to the Harvard Kennedy School to pursue a Master's in Public Administration. The program begins July 11.

The legislature is currently still in session, making this year’s meeting the longest in state history.

In his resignation letter, Cano said he is looking forward to his next chapter in public service after completing his degree.

Cano was first elected to the legislature in 2018.
