New Milford has hired a new Health Director, who is familiar to the area. Lisa Morrissey will take on the role, following the retirement of Mike Crespan next month. Morrissey was the Health Director for Bridgeport, previously holding the position in Danbury. She told CT Insider that she resigned from her post in Bridgeport independent of getting another job.
When Morrissey took the job in Bridgeport, that City Council praised her resume. There was some criticism though that she wouldn't be moving her family from Danbury to Bridgeport as required by the Charter.
Morrissey was diagnosed with COVID-19 in early December and had to quarantine for two weeks.
