Allan B. Taylor, who has been the chairman of the Connecticut State Board of Education for nearly 10 years, is retiring from his day job to work for Hartford municipal government.
Day Pitney LLC, a law firm with some offices based in downtown Hartford, announced two weeks ago that Taylor would be retiring to become Hartford City Council’s first legislative and legal advisor.
Taylor has practiced law at Day Pitney his entire career, but was formerly on the city’s school board and city council.
“I am looking forward to this new opportunity, and I’m honored to be given this chance to serve the city of Hartford once more,” Taylor said in a statement.
The State Board of Education is responsible for making policy decisions that directly impact Hartford and towns across the state.
