Head Of Connecticut’s Port Authority Placed On Leave

Evan Matthews, head of the quasi-public agency responsible for promoting investments in Connecticut’s three deepwater ports, has been placed on administrative leave. The news comes as the state continues work to finalize a $93 million public-private investment in New London’s State Pier. In an email Thursday, Governor Lamont’s Director of Communications Maribel La Luz, confirmed the personnel change. The $93 million deal announced in May would fund investments to outfit the port with equipment to accommodate and lift heavy components used in offshore wind turbines on the east coast.
