HARTFORD – Senate President Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statements in response to the announcement that Comptroller Kevin Lembo will resign at the end of this year.

“State Comptroller Kevin Lembo has been an extraordinary public servant for our state both as Comptroller for the past 11 years and prior to that as the state’s Health Care Advocate,” said Senator Looney. “I am truly thankful for his years of partnership on various public policy initiatives especially on health care insurance and state finances. We are a healthier state physically and financially because of all his tireless efforts over the years. I wish him and his family the best as he steps away from elected office at this time.”
