We knew it was coming, but we didn't know when.
Dan Esty, Commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection, will soon return to his position at Yale. His tenure as Commissioner will end February 3. Yale granted Esty a leave of absence to serve as a state agency commissioner.
Presiding over the first state environmental agency to gain Bike Friendly Business accreditation is among Esty's accomplishments at DEEP. Esty's tireless support for bike/ped initiatives and active transportation will be missed [DEEP-ly].
Bike Walk Connecticut will be working to get the ear of Governor Malloy and his staff to appoint a successor who advances active transportation as being good for the environment, good for the economy, and good for our health, as much as Esty does.
Send us your bike walk related news and time permitting, we'll do our best to post it.
