Senator McKinney on Appointment of Justice Katz to be DCF Commissioner

November 30, 2010

State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney on the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Joette Katz to be Commissioner of the Department of Children and Families (DCF):

“The appointment of Justice Katz to be the new DCF Commissioner improves the agency’s image and prospects for a brighter future. I have known and respected Justice Katz as a personal friend and dedicated public servant for years. Her professionalism and work ethic are beyond reproach and she is uniquely qualified to untangle the bureaucratic knot that has made DCF too big and too slow to respond efficiently to children in crisis.”
