Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the search has been narrowed down to “a couple of prospects” to replace Department of Social Services Commissioner Michael Starkowski, one of three department heads reappointed on an interim basis in December.
During a press conference to announce his appointment of Judge Lubbie Harper Jr. to the state Supreme Court, Malloy said he expects to spend more time filling positions now that his budget is out.
Malloy has yet to announce permanent replacements for the commissioners of developmental services and transportation, who were reappointed on an interim basis along with Starkowski. Other departments still awaiting commissioner selections include education and economic and community development.
