First Selectman Timothy M. Herbst on Monday announced the appointment of Elaine Y. Wang as his new Chief of Staff. Wang replaces Daniel Nelson, who announced last month that he was resigning to pursue other business opportunities. "Elaine's legal and business background will serve the Town of Trumbull well and I am excited she has decided to join our team," stated the First Selectman. "As Chief of Staff, Elaine will be responsible for negotiating and managing all of our collective bargaining agreements as well as managing departments and personnel. When I interviewed Elaine, I was impressed by her intelligence, honesty and diversity of experience. I am confident that her background and skill set is an ideal fit for the administration."
Since graduating from law school, Wang has worked for two family companies located in both the United States and China. Wang, an attorney admitted to practice law in Connecticut and New York, brings experience from the legal and business sector to her new position.
