HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Three top members of Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s staff are leaving the administration.
Brian Durand, the Democratic governor’s chief of staff, announced Wednesday that Deputy Chief of Staff Mark Bergman, Communications Director Devon Puglia and Senior Director of Policy and Government Affairs Paul Mounds “will each be leaving our office to pursue new professional opportunities.”
The planned changes to Malloy’s senior staff are expected to take place early in the fall.
Malloy praised all three as “outstanding key members of our team,” and wished them well in their new endeavors.
Replacements are being named for Mounds and Puglia. However, Durand says there’s no immediate plan to replace Bergman as the deputy chief of staff.
Malloy is currently midway through his second four-year term in office.
