Lee D. Hoffman, an attorney with Pullman & Comley, LLC, has been appointed by Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy as a member of the State Team Organized for the Review of Management of Irene (S.T.O.R.M. Irene) assessment team.
The S.T.O.R.M. Irene panel, composed of eight members with backgrounds including the military, disaster relief, municipal government, non-profit and labor sectors, will review the state's preparedness and response and recovery efforts related to Tropical Storm Irene. In addition, the group will look at the state’s overall disaster preparedness and response efforts.
In an interview with the Connecticut Post, Lee said that an important part of the group's task is to look ahead to future storm events.
"I think the biggest thing for the committee to accomplish is to give the citizens of Connecticut a sense of what we have done correctly and what can we improve upon in the future," he said.
