Meriden Mayor Michael S. Rohde was named today by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to the Connecticut Commuter Rail Council.

Under state law, Malloy is responsible for appointing four of the new council’s 15 members, one of whom must be the chief elected official of a municipality located on an operating or proposed rail line. His other appointments are John Davis of Stamford, James Gildea of Derby and Susan Prosi-Johnson of Stratford.

The council replaces the Metro-North North Haven Rail Commuter Council.
