Mayor Toni Harp is no longer state Sen. Toni Harp.

Harp made it official Tuesday, submitting a formal letter to the secretary of the state stating that she has resigned as state senator from the 10th District, a position she has held for 21 years. Harp was sworn in as New Haven’s 50th mayor on Jan. 1.

“I appreciate the opportunities I have been given and the wonderful people I have met along the way,” Harp wrote to Secretary of the State Denise Merrill.

Merrill has notified Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who now has until Jan. 17 to issue a Writ of Special Election. Then an election must take place within 46 days of that issuance.

So far state Rep. Gary Holder-WInfield is the one known candidate seeking the Senate seat.
