Peter Lacy, commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, has resigned suddenly, according to a spokesperson for the governor’s office.
Lacy had previously told the governor’s office he would leave the job effective May 27, but on Wednesday notified Governor Eric Holcomb that the resignation was effective immediately.
A reason for the abrupt resignation was not given.
Lacy was appointed BMV commissioner in 2017 after serving as chief of staff for two years.
Earlier this month, Holcomb announced Joe Hoage, the commissioner of the Department of Labor and the former general counsel for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, would be the next BMV commissioner.
