State Senator Peter Bragdon says he's stepping down from the Senate next month.
This comes as the Milford Republican has been reappointed to lead the Health Trust for another two years.
Bragdon took the job with the former Local Government Center in August.
He stepped down as Senate president in September to avoid what he described as the appearance of a conflict of interest, but stayed on as a state Senator.
He says doing both jobs in the short-term was possible, but long-term, it was impractical.
