Tom Saadi of Danbury has been unanimously confirmed as Commissioner of Veterans Affairs by the state House of Representatives. The nomination was introduced on the floor by Deputy House Speaker Bob Godfrey of Danbury.
Saadi said he was truly humbled by the kind words from the legislators who spoke in favor of his confirmation. He also thanked Majority Leader Matt Ritter and Representative Matt Blumenthal, the sons of two mentors. Former House Speaker Tom Ritter hired Saadi as a Legislative Assistant in the early 1990s and then-Attorney General Richard Blumenthal hired him as an Assistant Attorney General in 2000.
Saadi says he looks forward to continuing to serve Connecticut veterans.
