GOV. MALLOY STATEMENT ON THE RESIGNATION OF MICHAEL P. MEOTTI, EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF REGENTS
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today released the following statement on the resignation of Michael P. Meotti, Executive Vice President of the Board of Regents:
“As I said earlier today, there have been many accomplishments at the Board over the last year. And, like Bob Kennedy, Mike deserves a lot of credit for the meaningful changes that took place during his time as Executive Vice President.
“Mike’s had a long, distinguished career in public service, in several capacities. Mike shares our view that one of our most pressing obligations is to make sure that all of our young people have the opportunity to pursue a meaningful higher education. During his time at the Board, Mike worked hard to help Connecticut meet that obligation and I want to thank him for his service.
“It’s my hope that with the resignations announced today, the Board can take the time it needs to figure out what went wrong, why it went wrong, and what needs to be done to make sure nothing like this happens again. The implementation of the reforms I proposed, the legislature passed and I signed into law last year need to continue. I also hope these announcements will allow the distractions to end so that we can all refocus our attention where it belongs: on the students.”
