Duff Appoints Norwalk Police Sergeant to Connecticut Port Authority Board of Directors

HARTFORD, CT – Today, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) announced that he has appointed Sergeant Gregg Scully to the Connecticut Port Authority Board of Directors. Sergeant Gregg Scully is a Police Sergeant with the Norwalk Police Department. The appointment is effective immediately and expires on June 30, 2021.

“Sergeant Scully will be a great addition to the Connecticut Port Authority Board of Directors,” said Senator Duff. “His distinguished career with the Norwalk Police Department, including his work as a Marine Unit Officer and Norwalk Harbormaster, gives him unique insight into the Connecticut ports and maritime industry. I’m pleased that Gregg will be able to contribute his expertise toward ensuring our ports and maritime economy are thoroughly invested in and maximized.”

Mr. Scully has served with the Norwalk Police Department since 1999. He began as a police patrolman and served in that capacity until 2012 and was promoted to Sergeant in 2013. From 2006 – 2013, he served as a full-time marine unit officer, where he worked closely with the U.S. Coast Guard, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Aquaculture, obtaining water samples for environmental testing in the harbor and surrounding Norwalk Islands. Since 2017, Mr. Scully has served as Norwalk Harbormaster where he enforces all regulations in order to ensure the safety of navigation, security of the harbor, and correct operation of all harbor facilities.

“We have one of the most vibrant seaboards in the Northeast and I’m looking forward to bringing my experience as Norwalk Harbormaster working with the State DOT, DEEP, and Coast Guard to the Port Authority Board of Directors,” said Sergeant Scully. “I’ve spent the last 45 years on the Long Island Sound, the last 15 years as a Master Captain, in the Norwalk Police Marine Division and as team leader of the Norwalk Police ESU Scuba Team and have developed a strong sense of responsibility to the resources of the Long Island Sound and surrounding boating communities.”

The Connecticut Port Authority is a quasi-public agency created in 2014 that is responsible for marketing and coordinating the development of the state’s ports and maritime economy. The governing board is composed of 15 voting members, including state officials, community leaders, port authority professionals, and individuals with knowledge related to trade, marine transportation, and finance.
