HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The president of a trade association for community-based health and human service providers is being appointed as the new commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Developmental Services.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Monday named Morna Murray of Glastonbury to the position. She succeeds Terrance Macy, who left the job in January.

Murray is currently the president and CEO of the Connecticut Community Providers Association. Malloy credited Murray, an attorney, with being an advocate for children, adults and families on issues of developmental disabilities, health care, behavioral health, early childhood and child and family well-being.

David Pickus, president of SEIU 1199 New England, said the union looked forward to working with Murray on many challenges, including the 2,000 individuals on the agency’s waiting list for housing services and “stagnant” workers’ salaries.
