Following the Governor's appointments to the Connecticut Airport Authority, State Senate President Donald E. Williams appointed Enfield resident Karen Jarmoc to the board. The Authority is charged with developing, improving and operating Bradley International Airport and the five other general aviation airports in the State.
"I am honored and excited in regard to this tremendous opportunity to be a part of this leadership team," said Jarmoc. "Clearly, the economic potential for Bradley and all of Connecticut's airports has not been fully realized. I am eager to get to work and help fully leverage Bradley's ability to be a boost to business and more responsive to market conditions. Bradley is a business and must help drive growth in the long-run.”
Jarmoc served two terms in the state legislature from 2006 to 2010 representing Enfield. She holds degrees in communications and political science from Simmons College, and a master's degree from Trinity Collge in public policy. She is currently chairperson of the board of the Asnuntuck Community College Foundation and the United Way of North Central Connecticut. She also helped establish the legislative action committee for the North Central Connecticut Chamber of Commerce.
“Karen brings an ideal mix of government, business, and civic experience to the Airport Authority Board,” said Senator Williams. “I’m pleased she has accepted this opportunity to serve the state at this important time. Connecticut’s airports can - and must – play a pivotal role in our economic recovery. Karen will help make this a reality.”
She lives in Enfield with her husband Stephen.
