Former CT Governor Malloy to lead University of Maine system

ORONO, Maine (WTNH) - Former Governor Dannel Malloy will be leading the University of Maine system. 

The university announced that the former Connecticut Governor and former mayor of Stamford, will begin his service as the 13th chancellor of the University of Maine system on July 1st. 

The board will formally introduce Malloy on Thursday at the annual Title IX training for university
 leaders at the University of Maine campus in Orono.  

James Erwin, Chair of the UMS Board of Trustees, released the following statement: 

"Dan Malloy is an executive leader and public servant committed to taking on complex change initiatives and getting the job done. As governor he delivered reforms and structural changes to state government  that were not always popular, and certainly not expedient, but that advanced the long term interest of his state and its citizens."

The two-term governor was first elected in 2010 and won re-election in 2014. Malloy chose not to seek re-election in 2018.
