The state’s incoming lieutenant governor, Susan Bysiewicz, has drawn heavily from the New Haven area to staff her new office.
New Haven delivered the largest batch of votes in November for the victorious ticket of Ned Lamont and Bysiewicz for governor and lieutenant governor.
So far Lamont has tapped no New Haven talent for appointments to his gubernatorial team.
Bysiewicz this week announced her own new team; Adam Joseph will lead it as chief of staff.
Joseph, who lives in Morris Cove, once worked for Bysiewicz when she was secretary of the state, before moving to posts in then-New Haven Mayor John DeStefano’s administration. Since 2011 he has served as director of communications for State Senate leader Martin Looney of New Haven.
Bysiewicz tapped Cherie Phoenix-Sharpe to serve as her chief legal advisor. Phoenix-Sharpe currently works as an assistant corporation counsel for the city of New Haven.
Another New Havener, Juliemar Ortiz, will serve as Bysiewicz’s press secretary. Ortiz worked as a New Haven Register reporter before taking a post as a spokesperson for State Senate Democrats.
Jimmy Tickey, the campaign manager for New Haven U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro since 2010, will move over to Bysiewicz’s office as “senior adviser for economic and community development,” an area on which Bysiewicz plans to focus as lieutenant governor. Another former DeLauro staffer, Samuel Carmody, will take a job as Bysiewicz’s legislative and government relations aide.
“I am proud to announce a team that brings both diverse perspectives as well as strong experience in local, state and federal government,” Bysiewicz stated in a release.
Bysiewicz discussed her lieutenant governor plans in a recent interview, above, on WNHH FM’s “Dateline New Haven” program.

More Black and Latino Faces in High Places. Black and Latino Faces in High Places are the new oppresses of there people.These Judas Goat Latino and Negro leaders, whether conservative or liberal, need to be exposed.SNCC used to have a saying: “Move on over, or we’ll move over you!” Wake up Black and Latino people.Time to move these Judas Goats out.
Although popular Negro leaders are now emerging, most of them are still selected by white leadership, elevated to positions, supplied with resources and inevitably subjected to white control. The masses of Negros are suspicious toward this manufactured leader. We have to create leaders that have virtues that we can respect, who have moral and ethical principles that we can applaud. We have to refuse crumbs from the big city machine, and demand a fair share of the loaf—-DR. KING (from his book called, a Testament of Hope)
The black masses reject the Uncle Tom approach of the Negro leadership that has been handpicked by the white man. These Uncle Tom leaders don’t speak for the Negro majority, they don’t speak for the black masses. They speak for the black bourgeoisie, the brainwashed white minded, middle class minority. Who are ashamed of black and don’t want to be identified with the black masses—-MALCOLM X (from his speech called, God’s Judgment of White America)
