Issues & Policies

DEP Commissioner Dan Esty named former state legislator Jessie Stratton as director of policy development for the agency. Stratton will lead the integration of Connecticut’s energy and environmental policies into a new Department of Energy and Environmental Protection

Stratton served in the state House or Representatives from 1989 through 2003, representing Avon and Canton. During much of that period, she was co-chair of the legislature’s Environment Committee. Most recently, she was director of government relations for Environment Northeast, a regional environmental advocacy organization.

Commissioner Esty said Stratton “is considered by many to be one of the most talented people in the state when it comes to energy and environment.” He said she would have a major role in helping shape policy.

CBIA has a decades-long and positive working relationship with Jessie Stratton,” said CBIA’s Eric Brown. “This is the first of several key appointments the new commissioner needs to make.

“We hope his future selections will similarly reflect his interest in hiring managers committed to protecting the environment in a manner that encourages a strong economy.”
