State Rep. Hovey not included on Sandy Hook Advisory Commission

I wonder if State Rep. Hovey will throw a hissy fit on Facebook over being snubbed by Gov. Malloy.

PRESS RELEASE:

Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced the names of 16 members of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, an expert panel the Governor announced on Thursday that will review current policy and make specific recommendations in the areas of public safety, with particular attention paid to school safety, mental health, and gun violence prevention.

"I've asked this group to join Chairman Scott Jackson so they can begin the task of taking a broad, systemic approach in crafting the recommendations that will lead to comprehensive legislative and policy changes that must occur following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School," Governor Malloy said. "This includes ensuring that our mental health system can reach those that need its help, looking for ways to make sure our gun laws are as tight as they are reasonable, and making certain that our law enforcement has the tools it needs to protect public safety, particularly in our schools."

The members are:

Chairman: Scott Jackson - Mayor, Town of Hamden

Dr. Adrienne Bentman - Director, Adult Psychiatry Residency Program, Hartford Hospital's Institute of Living

Ron Chivinski - Teacher, Newtown Middle School

Robert Ducibella - Founding Principal, DVS Security Consulting and Engineering

Terry Edelstein - Nonprofit Liaison to Governor Malloy

Kathleen Flaherty - Staff Attorney, Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut, Inc. / Facilitator and State Trainer, National Alliance for Mental Illness in Connecticut

Dr. Alice M. Forrester - Executive Director, Clifford W. Beers Guidance Clinic, Inc.

Dr. Ezra Griffith - Professor Emeritus of and Senior Research Scientist in Psychiatry, Deputy Chair for Diversity and Organizational Ethics, Department of Psychiatry, Yale University

Patricia Keavney-Maruca - Member, State Board of Education / Former technical high school teacher

Christopher Lyddy - Outgoing State Representative, 106th Assembly District of Newtown / Program Manager, Trainer & Consultant, Advanced Trauma Solutions, Inc. / Former Program Director, Youth Equipped for Success!, Forensic Health Services, Inc. / Former Clinical Supervisor, Juvenile Risk Reduction Center, Community Solutions, Inc. [Membership effective January 10, 2013]

Denis McCarthy - Fire Chief, City of Norwalk

Barbara O'Connor - Director of Public Safety and Chief of Police, University of Connecticut

Wayne Sandford - Professor, University of New Haven, Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice & Forensic Sciences / Former Deputy Commissioner, Connecticut Department of Emergency Management & Homeland Security / Former Fire Chief, Town of East Haven

Dr. David J. Schonfeld - Director, National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement / Professor, University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics

Dr. Harold I. Schwartz - Chief Psychiatrist, Hartford Hospital's Institute of Living

Bernard R. Sullivan - Former Chief of Police, City of Hartford / Former Commissioner, Connecticut Department of Public Safety / Former Chief of Staff to House Speaker Tom Ritter

An initial report will be due to the Governor by March 15, in time for consideration during the regular session of the General Assembly. The commission's members are currently developing a meeting schedule, which will be announced as soon as it is available.


Hopefully come next November, the residents in Monroe and Newtown will FINALLY do the right thing and give their disgraceful State Rep. her LONG OVERDUE pink slip.
