Stillman to co-chair Education Committee

Sen. Andrea Stillman has been selected to co-chair the legislature’s Education Committee, following former chairman Sen. Thomas P. Gaffey‘s resignation after deciding to plea guilty to larceny.

Stillman, D-Waterford, has been on the Education Committee for two years and leads a task force that is looking into modifying how Individualized Education Programs in schools are used. She also represents the state on the New England Secondary School Consortium.

Stillman was previously named the co-chairwoman of the Transportation Committee, which will now be filled by Sen. Andrew Maynard, D-Stonington.
