HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A former chairman of the Connecticut Republican Party is being tapped as the communications and policy analyst for the state Senate Republicans.

Sen. Len Fasano, the incoming Senate Minority Leader, announced Tuesday that Chris Healy will join the Senate GOP office next month.

Fasano credited Healy, a former newspaper reporter, with having “extensive experience in politics.” He said Healy will help the caucus better communicate policy ideas with constituents across the state.

Healy served as chairman of the Connecticut Republicans from 2007 to 2011. He currently has a political consulting business and has worked on various campaigns, including as senior adviser to Lisa Wilson-Foley’s failed 2012 congressional run.

Wilson-Foley is seeking probation for her role in a scheme to hide the role of ex-Gov. John G. Rowland in that campaign.
