Esty Names Replacement For DEEP Deputy Who Resigned

The Hartford Courant's Jon Lender is reporting that a former White House Counsel on Environmental Quality, Katie Scharf-Dykes, Schrag has been appointed to replace Jonathan Schrag, who resigned last week amid claims he made a harassing phone call to the head of a conservative woman's group.

 Dykes is shown in the photo at left from last August announcing her engagement to Michael McCormack Dykes.

In early February before the scandal surrounding Schrag hit, Schrag was out promoting the ideas of his boss, DEEP Commissioner Dan Esty, about the need to increase distributed power generation around the state.

Esty, Schrag said, wants to see a pilot program for distributed generation as part of a response to last year's two crippling storms that left hundreds of thousands of Connecticut residents without power twice in a little over two months.
