Raimondo: Coit To Stay Top Enviromental Official

 Gov.-elect Gina Raimondo says she wants the state's top environmental to stay on when she takes office next year.

Department of Environmental Management Director Janet Coit was first appointed by outgoing Gov. Lincoln Chafee in 2011.

Raimondo said on Wednesday that Coit has been a strong advocate for the environment and a skilled manager of a complex department. She says Coit has a passion for conserving our natural resources.

Coit says she is honored to have the opportunity to continue serving the people of the state, and she says she is inspired by the prospect of being part of the Raimondo administration.

Raimondo says she'll submit Coit's name to the Senate in January for re-confirmation.
