HARTFORD, Conn. – Former state Rep. Elizabeth Ritter of Waterford was nominated by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy Wednesday to serve as commissioner of the Aging Department.

The agency was re-established by Malloy in 2013 and has a budget of about $9.5 million. Her nomination will need to be approved by one chamber of the General Assembly.

Ritter, who ran and lost a state Senate race in 2014, will be paid $125,000 a year in her new position.

Malloy said the state has a growing senior population, which is one of the reasons he decided to re-established the Aging Department as a stand alone agency.
