Rell Picks Fed For State Police

The Associated Press Reports that:

Governor Rell is nominating Assistant United States Attorney John Danaher to serve as her new commissioner of the Department of Public Safety.

Danaher supervised federal prosecutions of former Waterbury Mayor Philip Giordano and former Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim.

If confirmed by the state legislature, he will replace Leonard Boyle, a former federal prosecutor. Boyle has said publicly he is looking for a new job.

The state public safety commissioner oversees the state police, the division of fire, emergency and building services, and the state forensic lab.
