Marilyn Alverio Appointed To Connecticut Social Equity Council

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has appointed a new member to the state’s Social Equity Council (SEC).

On Wednesday, August 25, the Governor’s Office announced the appointment of Latinas & Power Symposium founder Marilyn Alverio to the SEC.

Last month, Governor Lamont announced Joseph Williams’ and Dr. Kelli Vallieres’ appointments to the SEC.

In July, Governor Lamont also announced officials from his administration who will serve as ex-officio members on the SEC.

The members include Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner David Lehman, Office of Policy and Management Secretary Melissa McCaw, and Department of Consumer Protection Deputy Commissioner Andréa Comer.

On August 5, Governor Lamont announced his selection of Comer to serve as SEC Chairperson.

The 15-member SEC was formed during the 2021 summer after Governor Lamont signed a new law legalizing and regulating adult-use cannabis in Connecticut.

Council positions are on an unpaid volunteer basis.
