Malloy Names Committees to Help with Transition

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut Gov.-elect Dan Malloy has named a team to help him and his running mate fill their cabinet and other state government positions over the next several weeks.

Malloy announced his picks on Monday for his steering, personnel and policy committees.

Lt. Gov.-elect Nancy Wyman and Malloy’s chief of staff, Tim Bannon, are both overseeing the steering committee, which is heading up the transition effort. Malloy takes office in January, replacing the retiring Gov. M. Jodi Rell.

Committee members come from a wide range of backgrounds, including union leaders, mayors, business leaders, attorneys, past and present state officials, and Malloy campaign aides.

Malloy says the teams reflect a diversity of opinions, experience, political party and cultural background.
