A Redding resident has been nominated to serve on the Connecticut Port Authority's Board of Directors. There are four vacancies on the recently cerated Connecticut Port Authority. Governor Dannel Malloy has nominated Pamela Elkow of Redding to one of the Directors positions.
Elkow currently works as an attorney in the environmental practice group with Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey, LLP in Stamford. Previously, she worked for Robinson & Cole, LLP, and Jacobi, Kappel & Kase. She received her B.A. from Colgate University and her J.D. from the George Washington University Law School.
The Port Authority is a quasi-public agency responsible for marketing and coordinating the development of the state’s ports and maritime economy. While the state's maritime industry already supports thousands of jobs, Malloy says it has the potential for significant growth, which will take more trucks off the road and lower emissions.
There are a total of 15 members of the Port Authority’s Board of Directors. In addition to the Governor’s four appointments, the authority’s other members are appointed by legislative leaders of both parties, in addition to several ex-officio members.
