MONTPELIER, Vermont — Vermont Attorney General TJ Donovan announced Friday that he is stepping down this month to take a job with online gaming company Roblox.
Donovan, a Democrat, was first elected attorney general in 2016. He previously served as the state’s attorney in Chittenden County.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the people of Vermont for nearly 16 years as an elected official,” he said in a statement, adding that the attorney general’s office “has a strong team in place. to carry out his duties to protect Vermonters” until the next Attorney General is sworn in.
He accepts a position as Director of Public Policy and State Strategy for Roblox, a company based in San Mateo, California. He will remain in Vermont and his resignation is effective at the end of the business day on June 20.
“While this is a difficult decision, I am thrilled that this new role allows me to continue to advance consumer protection,” Donovan said. “I will also continue to advocate for children, teens and their families while learning and integrating safeguards with emerging trends and technologies.”
