Former state Rep. Winkler appointed to Freedom of Information Commission
Former state Rep. Lenny T. Winkler has been appointed to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and confirmed by the state Senate.
Winkler, who represented the 41st District, was sworn in as a commissioner on May 22. Her term runs until June 30, 2016. She serves with eight other comissioners.
The Freedom of Information Commission’s mission is to administer and enforce the provisions of the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act, and to thereby ensure citizen access to the records and meetings of public agencies in the State of Connecticut, according to its website.
The FOI Commission hears complaints from persons who have been denied access to the records or meetings of public agencies in Connecticut.
Winkler represented Groton in the state House of Representatives from 1988 to 2006.
