Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has named a new executive administrator of Connecticut's Office of Government Accountability, a collection of nine regulatory offices, including the Office of State Ethics and Freedom of Information Commission.
Shelby J. Brown of East Hartford, currently the associate director of employee relations at the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education, will take on the new job. She replaces David Guay, who was appointed in October by Malloy to serve as the executive director of the State Contracting Standards Board.
Malloy chose Brown from a list of approved candidates provided to him by the Governmental Accountability Commission. She was the panel's top candidate.
Brown is scheduled to begin her new job on Jan. 10 on an acting basis. Her appointment requires confirmation by the General Assembly.
