Minutes

A meeting of the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Board was held on January 23, 2019 in the Workers’ Compensation Commission’s CRB Hearing Room, 21 Oak Street, Hartford, Connecticut. The meeting convened at 10:03 A.M. with the following Board Members present: Chairman Michael Riley, presiding; Rocco Calo, Gregory Nokes, Ross Hollander, David Lucas, Michael Dimenstein, Karen Welch and John Adamson.

    1. Executive Session
      1. A motion was made and seconded to adjourn to Executive Session, for members to discuss recommendation on the reappointment of Commissioner Mullins.
    2. Formal Vote
      1. The regular meeting was reconvened, at which point David Lucas made a motion to recommend the reappointment of Commissioner Thomas J. Mullins as a Workers’ Compensation Commissioner. The motion was seconded by Ross Hollander. The motion failed with one member (John Adamson) voting in favor, and six members (Rocco Calo, Gregory Nokes, Ross Hollander, David Lucas, Michael Dimenstein and Karen Welch) voting in opposition. The Advisory Board therefore had no recommendation on the reappointment.
