On Friday afternoon, Natalie Braswell was officially sworn in as Connecticut’s state comptroller.
Braswell was appointed by Governor Ned Lamont to complete the term of Comptroller Kevin Lembo, who resigned from office due to health issues. The term ends in Jan. 2023.
“I’m honored to serve the people of Connecticut as comptroller and look forward to hitting the ground running,” said Braswell. “The upcoming year will certainly bring challenges, but also tremendous opportunity to improve taxpayers’ relationship with government, expand our state’s economy and better protect public health. Comptroller Lembo set a high standard for this office, where service to community is the highest priority, and we value expertise and creativity at all levels of our staff. I intend to carry on that legacy and ensure that the office continues to meet the high standards of Connecticut residents.”
