Multiple CT Connections on New Panel Focused on Restarting Regional Economy

Tuesday, April 21, 2020

HARTFORD, CT -- Connecticut may have three representatives on the newly appointed 21-member multi-state panel charged by Governors in the region with plotting a course to re-start the economy, but the state may receive an extra boost from members representing other states who have more than a cursory awareness of Connecticut.

The seven Governors - Ned Lamont of Connecticut, Andrew M. Cuomo of New York, Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island, Phil Murphy of New Jersey, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, and John Carney of Delaware - formed the regional council to “restore the economy and get people back to work,” the chief executives announced over the weekend.

Connecticut’s representatives are Indra Nooyi, Co-chair of the nonprofit economic development organization AdvanceCT and former chairman and CEO of PepsiCo; Dr. Albert Ko: Professor of Epidemiology and Medicine and department chair at the Yale School of Public Health; and Paul Mounds, Jr., Chief of Staff for Gov. Lamont and a former vice president of policy and communications for the Connecticut Health Foundation.
