Gov. Ned Lamont has nominated Judge Joan K. Alexander for associate justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court and Judge Hope C. Seeley as a judge of the state Appellate Court to succeed Alexander. Lamont announced 11 other nominations as well on Wednesday.

The nominations of Alexander and Seeley, who is a Superior Court judge, next go to the state legislature.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives confirmed Jeffrey R. Beckham as secretary of the Office of Policy and Management on Wednesday. Beckham had been serving as acting secretary since March after former Secretary Melissa McCaw abruptly left the position at the end of February.

Speaking on the House floor, Rep. Julio Concepcion (D-Hartford) said Beckham’s goals include providing continuity for the Lamont administration and carrying out an agenda and visions for the state.

“I believe he has the right experience and temperament to lead OPM with dignity and prosperity,” said Concepcion, co-chair of the Executive and Legislation Nominations Committee.
